Called the Canadian trademark office?
If you're from Canada, you might want to seek "advice"
from someone there. This forum's mainly for US law.
I'll tell you this much, though: the answer is yes. Will[/i] it
prosper or not depends on a variety of factors (e.g. use,
domain's creation date, etc.).
If the domain name's current[/i] usage is similar, related, or
associated in any way to that of someone's trademark
rights (if any), especially if that use is commercial, that's
one possible strike against you. Attempting to sell it to
someone who can demonstrate trademark rights to the
term/s in question can be another.
It boils down to your intent for the domain name. Some
laws (especially trademark laws) and your domain name
provider's service agreement limit how you intend to use
However, some parties resort to "reverse domain name
hijacking". Essentially it's abusing the laws and process
available for domain name disputes to wrest control of
the domain name/s legitimately for "unethical" reasons.
Be ready to seek an attorney to assess and weigh your
potential legal risks. That's what they're for, after all.
