CIPO has confirmed that most deadlines for patents, trademarks and industrial designs falling between March 16 – May 18, 2020 will now be extended to May 19, 2020.
This is a follow-up to CIPO’s March 17, 2020 and March 30, 2020 announcements that deadlines falling between March 16 – April 30, 2020 would be extended to May 1, 2020 (see our previous reports here and here).
We expect that this deadline could be further extended, and we will provide additional updates as the situation evolves. Hicks IP will continue to work toward meeting original deadlines upon timely receipt of instructions.
