Patent researcher datasets: Bibliographic, full text and administrative status data (CSV and TXT)

From: Canadian Intellectual Property Office

Download records of patent applications and granted patents filed with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO). We provide new and updated records on a quarterly basis.

The files on this page consist of tables with data from multiple patent records, as opposed to our XML files, which are individual to each patent record. To download patent data in XML format, please visit our bibliographic and full text or administrative status pages.

Note: We only publish patent applications after a confidentiality period. This period is up to 18 months, starting after the earliest filing date of an application.


We provide this data in a combination of CSV and TXT formats. Compared to XML, these formats are more accessible to researchers. This aligns with CIPO's goal to encourage research in the field of intellectual property.

Information included

Note: We scan the applications using optical character recognition. These files do not represent a legal copy.

Data structure

This database consists of 7 tables:

PT_Main is the master table that contains the patent number as the primary key, as well as basic information regarding the patent application. All other tables can be linked to the PT_Main table through the patent number. Due to the amount of data, we have split some tables into multiple smaller tables to make them more manageable for downloading.
