Writing a patent application (page 7 of 8)
A new form will be available soon. In the meantime, please follow these instructions.
Your petition is your formal request for a patent. It states your name and postal address and the title of the patent. If you have co-applicants, you need to add their names and their postal addresses. Please ensure that all applicants are correctly identified and that their names are correctly spelled. While it is possible to correct the identity and spelling of applicants, the timelines to do so are short.
You can also include in the petition:
- requests for priority,
- appointments of patent agents,
- appointment of the common representative,
- the statement of entitlement,
- the identification of the inventors (and their postal addresses),
- a small entity declaration (it must be signed).
For more information, please see Section 4.03 in Chapter 4 of the MOPOP and section 53 of the Patent Rules.
