 Registering trademark in Canada - trademarked in USA by oth

I am looking to register a trademark in Canada for product that I am producing. The same product is produced in the USA and is trademarked by another company (has been for about 5 years). Our products look similar and serve the same function.

It does not appear that the product name is trademarked in Canada and I was looking to do so. My reason for wanting to do this is the name is searched quite a bit on the internet and if I owned a trademark in Canada then I assume I would not be infringing on the USA trademark if targeting the words on the web.

any thoughts? Can the owner of the trademark in the USA come after me if they have chosen not to file in Canada?

thanks.
