CIPO Administers 2020 Patent Agent Exams Online

The Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) administered the 2020 Patent Agent Qualification Examination online last week via remote electronic delivery.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the dates of the exam were postponed this year from April, 2020 to November, 2020.  Candidates who wrote the 2020 Patent Agent Qualification Examination will not receive their results until January 11, 2021 (read more here). As a consequence of the delay, the 2021 Patent Agent Qualification Examination may be pushed back until the fall of next year.  Trainees who wish to sit the exams in 2021 should check the CIPO’s website regularly for the most recent updates and notices.
