June 17th is the date of implementation of some major changes to Canada's trademark laws, including the shortening of registration periods from 15 years to 10 and the removal of Declarations of Use from the registration process.
The Canadian Trademarks Office online platform will be unavailable from midnight EST on June 13th until 6 am June 17th.
Accordingly, if a deadline falls on June 14th, please ensure we receive instruction in advance. Moreover, if you are ready to register your pending mark please ensure you do so prior to June 13th to take advantage of the extended 15-year registration period.
