CIPO’s Performance Targets for 2020-2021

The Canadian Intellectual Property Office has provided on its website a list of performance targets for its services for the year 2020-2021. These performance targets take into account the impact caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Among other useful numbers, the performance targets provide an estimate for how long an applicant can expect to receive a first office action (either in the form of an allowance without an office action or issuance of a first office action) after filing a patent, trademark, industrial design, or copyright application. See here for a list of the performance targets.
