Although the Canadian Trademarks Office (CIPO) declared that deadlines falling between March 16 and March 31 are automatically extended to April 1, 2020, CIPO remains open and functional. That means new Applications are and will continue to be given filing dates during this period.
It is therefore more important than ever for brand owners to file their Canadian trademark applications as soon as possible in order to avoid being blocked by possible conflicting applications with earlier filing dates.
