COVID-19 Update: Final extension of Canadian Intellectual Property Office deadlines to August 24, 2020

Smart & Biggar

In view of the ongoing COVID-19 disruption, the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) has further extended patent, trademark, and industrial design deadlines fixed under the relevant legislation. Deadlines through Friday August 21, 2020 are now extended until Monday August 24, 2020.

CIPO has been extending deadlines incrementally since early in the COVID-19 pandemic, such that most deadlines falling on or after March 16, 2020 have been extended to August 24, 2020, a period of over five months.  However, CIPO has indicated that this will be the final extension of deadlines, so plan to take action by August 24, 2020, and do not expect deadlines to be extended further as a consequence of COVID-19.

Further details may be found on the CIPO website here.
