Trademark Regulations

Proposed amendments to the Trademark Regulations are published in the Canada Gazette for consultation. The proposed amendments would allow cost awards, case management and confidentiality orders before the TMOB, as well as would allow CIPO to indicate that an official mark holder is not a public authority or has ceased to exist. The changes support amendments to the Trademarks Act that are not yet in force.

The proposed amendments are included in the Canada Gazette Part I on June 8.

The amendments to the Trademarks Act were part of the Budget Implementation Act, 2018, No. 2 – see earlier blog post on the changes from 2018.

CIPO did a consultation on these changes in 2022 – see earlier post.
