Canadian Intellectual Property Office increases official fees on January 1, 2024

Please note that most official fees charged by the Canadian Intellectual Property Office will increase, by 25% to 36%, for payments made on or after January 1, 2024.

To minimize fees, fees due on or after January 1, 2024 may be paid at current 2023 fees, which are lower than 2024 fees, if payment is made before January 1, 2024.

For example, in respect of patents, new regular applications, national phase applications, and divisional applications may be filed in 2023 at the current 2023 fees. Fees due after January 1, 2024 may be paid in 2023 at current 2023 fees. In respect of trademarks and designs, new applications may be filed and renewal fees may be paid in 2023 at current 2023 fees.

If you wish to minimize fees, please provide your instructions this year, preferably by December 1, 2023.
