UPDATE – CIPO Announces Further Extension for Patent, Trademark and Industrial Design Deadlines

CIPO has confirmed that most deadlines for patents, trademarks and industrial designs falling between March 16 – May 31, 2020 will now be extended to June 1, 2020.

This is a follow-up to CIPO’s March 17, 2020, March 30, 2020 and April 27, 2020 announcements that deadlines falling between March 16 – May 18, 2020 would be extended to May 19, 2020.

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.
