FAQs
Q1. Term required for filing a patent application in Canada?
In Canada, inventors have one year (i.e., a "grace period") after their first public disclosure of their invention in which to file a Canadian patent application.
Q2. What is the Duration of Patents in Canada ?
Through a patent, the government gives you, the inventor, the right to stop others from making, using or selling your invention from the day the patent is granted to a maximum of 20 years after the day on which you filed your patent application.
Q3. What are the Filing requirements in Canada?
Canadian patent applications may be filed either in English or French, but the language of filing must be consistent throughout the application. To obtain the filing date, the description may be provided in any language, however, it is necessary to submit the translation into English or French within 2 months from the corresponding notice. To obtain a filing date it is necessary to provide the Canadian Patent Office with: - a request to grant a patent; - name and address of the applicant and patent agent; - document that appears to be a description in any language; - signed small entity declaration, if applicable. A certified copy of the Priority Document must be filed by the later of 16 months from the earliest priority date or 4 months after the filing date in Canada, or the priority application must be made available in a digital library and the Canadian Intellectual Property Office must be informed of its availability by the aforementioned deadlines. Translation of the priority application is not required but may be requested by the Office. No Power of Attorney is required when filing a patent application in Canada. If the applicant is the inventor, the application must contain a statement to that effect. If the applicant is not the inventor, the application should include a statement indicating the name and address of the inventor and either a declaration that the applicant is the legal representative of the inventor or a declaration as to the applicant’s entitlement to apply for and be granted a patent.
Q4. How to examine a Canadian patent application?
Patent applications in Canada undergo formal and substantive examinations. The substantive examination must be requested, and the official fee must be paid within four years from the filing date in Canada. If the request is not filed and/or the examination fee is not paid in due time, the applicant will have 2 months from the notification by the Office to request examination and pay the fee alongside the surcharge. If the applicant doesn't request examination within 2 months, the application will be considered abandoned. However, an abandoned application may be reinstated within 6 months of the expiration of the term for making the examination request upon payment of the reinstatement and late examination fees. Within 12 months of the expiration of the term for making the examination request the application may only be reinstated if the applicant additionally establishes that the deadline was missed despite due care. The facts underlying an assertion of due care are reviewed by the Federal Court. It is also possible to request an accelerated examination under
