 The Report can be viewed on CIPO’s website, and key insights include that the use of the Canadian IP system continued to increase in 2018, with patent applications increasing by 3% and trademark applications increasing by 7% over 2017.  The top countries in which Canadians file abroad include the United States, China and Europe, and correspondingly those regions are the largest sources of incoming foreign applications into Canada.
