Canadian Trademarks Update: Bills C-8 and C-31

On December 9, 2014 Bill C-8, the Combating Counterfeiting Products Act, received royal assent.   Bill C-8 contains trademark amendments relating to the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) and the registration of trademarks that are not included in Bill C-31, the Budget Implementation Act. The government is consolidating the overlapping provisions between the two bills.  The implementation of the Bill C-8 trademark amendments will be tied to the implementation of Bill C-31.
