Draft Trademark Regulations Open to Public Comment Unti...


The Canadian Intellectual Property Office recently released its draft Regulations under Canada's new Trademarks Act. They are open to public comment until July 21, 2017. This is the next step to the enactment of the amended Trademarks Act.

The proposed amendments to the Regulations are intended to facilitate Canada’s adherence to three international trademark treaties, namely the Singapore Treaty, the Nice Agreement, and the Madrid Protocol. They also clarify procedures and time frames for the filing and prosecution of Canadian trademark applications, as well as for opposition and section 45 proceedings.

The proposed amendments will implement a number of key changes in Canadian trademark practice also impacting foreign applicants. For further information, please read the article of our Canadian Partner Joli-Coeur Lacasse Avocats here
