Getting Started with IP: Patents

March 20 @ 1:00 pm 2:00 pm

Event location: Online.

What are patents? What can they protect and what do I need to know if I’m thinking of protecting my invention in Canada?

In this live presentation, you’ll learn the basics of patents. We’ll explain what patents can protect, important considerations like the time and costs involved in getting a patent, some important criteria for patents, and, of course, where to get more help.

Join us for an interactive presentation with online polls, live Q&As, and videos. All participants will get a copy of the presentation with links to CIPO’s most popular IP resources for businesses.
