We recently finalized the procedure of recovering a domain name, for a fresh chocolate Suisse producer. Every country has its specific legislation and requirements to be complied with in order to achieve the above-mentioned transfer.
Firstly, we helped our client to obtain the respective Canadian domain name from its previous owner. We negotiated with the latter, stage that ended successfully with the recovery of the .ca domain name.

For instance, the person who wants to register a .ca domain name has to either own a previously registered Canadian trademark – pending trademark registrations are not accepted, or it has to have an open subsidiary in Canada or to hold Canadian citizenship.
A fun fact is that if you are Her Majesty the Queen of England you can obtain the registration by default.
