Nassabi, Litigator and Registered Trademark AgentThe Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) has extended deadlines further and that any trademark deadlines that fall between May 19, 2020, and May 29, 2020, have now been extended to June 1, 2020. This includes deadlines for trademark oppositions. CIPO remains open for business and is encouraging everyone to act, if they can, before the extended deadline. 

CIPO’s intake process is in operation and is receiving documents related to trademark applications. However, you should expect significant delays in all CIPO services.

If you have any concerns or questions regarding your trademarks or intellectual property rights, contact litigator and Registered Trademark Agent Sepideh Nassabi at
