On July 11, 2009, proposed amendments to the Patent Rules were published in the Canada Gazette, Part I for public comment. According to the Federal Government, the regulatory amendments, which are scheduled to take effect 30 days after they are registered, are aimed at improving legal certainty, simplifying processes, and ultimately reducing administrative burdens in patent prosecution. Although the majority of the proposed amendments appear to be house-keeping in nature, one substantive change will (if adopted) affect the requirements for completing a Canadian patent application and specifically, the requirement to establish entitlement to file an application.
