Correspondence on International Registrations to Applicant/Canadian Agent Only


With regard to International Registrations, the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) will send correspondence to the applicant or an appointed Canadian trademark agent only. This is in accordance with the new Trademarks Regulations which came into force on June 17, 2019.

In consequence CIPO is not required to send all the WIPO correspondence to the foreign agent. CIPO however, will issue a courtesy letter to the foreign representatives informing them that all future correspondence will be sent only to the applicant or appointed Canadian trademark agent.
