The Government of Canada proposed amendments to the Trademarks Act through Bill C-31 in 2014 and Bill C-30 in 2016. As a result, there will be substantial changes made to the Act coming into force on June 17, 2019. Benefit from the analysis of experienced intellectual property practitioners as they summarize for you policy reasons, must-know changes, and impacts of the new Act on your clients. This course will cover the alignment of Canada with international trademark law, changes to use requirements for registration, the term of trademark protection, trademark eligibility, priority claims, and more. You will leave this course up to date and current.
