Using the Canada 150 Logo

As we prepare to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary in 2017, a distinctive graphic emblem is available for use — the Canada 150 logo.

The Canada 150 logo may be used at no charge, if permission is first obtained from the Government of Canada by following the instructions below.

Approval to use the Canada 150 typeface will also be granted to successful applicants.

How to apply to use the logo

Any individual, or authorized representatives of groups, organizations, companies, commercial organizations or provincial, territorial, or municipal governments, can apply to use the logo for commercial or non-commercial use.

For the purposes of applying for the use of the Canada 150 logo, 'commercial use' is defined as: a) the reproduction of the logo on wares offered for sale or distribution, or b) the display of the logo in association with goods or services offered for sale.

The Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages will enter into a license agreement for any approved use of the Canada 150 logo that is deemed to be for commercial purposes.
