Canada is about to become Nice-er: Canadian Intellectual Property Office to Accept Trademark Applications using the Nice Classification Starting this Fall

The Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) recently announced that starting Fall 2015, it will accept trademark applications with goods and services grouped and classed according to the Nice Classification. The implementation of the Nice Classification is in advance of Canada changing its trademark system as it joins the Madrid Protocol and Singapore Treaty.

Future blog postings will address how the changes to Canada’s trademark system will affect Canadian and foreign brand owners.

If you have any questions regarding the upcoming changes to Canada’s trademark system, please contact us.
