Fast-Track Canadian Patents

The Canadian Intellectual Property Office has announced its participation in the  Canada-U.S. Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) pilot project.  This experimental program, which has been in the works for some time, is designed to help fast-track patent examination in both Canada and the U.S. and increase efficiency in the patent examination process. The PPH project is also being used by other intellectual property offices, including the Japan Patent Office, the United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office, and the Korean Intellectual Property Office.  During the initial one-year pilot period, CIPO won’t require a fee to process requests for accelerated examination under the PPH project.
