Trade Secret Protection

Keep Secrets Secret

Trade Secret protection is entirely common-law based. Canadian courts will enforce agreements like NDAs relating to sensitive business information. While a court can never un-tell a secret, it can provide you compensation against the people or companies that profit off the disclosure of these secrets. This is how companies like Coca-Cola and KFC keep their secret recipes safe, but can be used for any sensitive information. This is in contrast to other intellectual property rights, as usually you are required to disclosure your IP to the public to ensure its protection. Trade Secret protection allows you some level of protection without disclosing any competitive advantages.
