The current Patent Rules will be repealed and replaced with new Rules, expected to come into force in 2019. The proposed new Rules will introduce sweeping changes that will impact all aspects of patent practice. CIPO launched a public consultation on the proposed new Rules to run from August 1 to September 8, 2017.

This webinar is your opportunity to learn about the proposed changes and how to provide your views to the government before the proposed rules are published in the Canada Gazette.
