Practice in Objection Proceedings under Section 11.13 of the Trade-marks Act

In effect as of September 21, 2017

This practice notice is intended to provide guidance on the Canadian Intellectual Property Office practice and interpretation of relevant legislation. However, in the event of any inconsistency between this notice and the applicable legislation, the legislation must be followed. The provisions of this practice notice are general guidelines only, are not binding in any particular case and are subject to change.

The provisions set out in the practice notices entitled Practice in Trademark Opposition Proceedings in effect since March 31, 2009 and Email communications of hearing correspondence, both of which are published on the website of the Canadian Intellectual Property Office, apply mutatis mutandis to objection proceedings under section 11.13 of the Trade-marks Act, insofar as they are not inconsistent with the Act or the Trade-marks Regulations.
