Trade-mark Act Amendments

Bill C-31, a budget bill that among other things, amends the Trade-marks Act passed third reading in the Senate yesterday. It is expected to receive royal assent soon, perhaps as early as this evening. The date of entry into force will be determined by an Order in Council.
