Notice on filing of certified electronic priority documents to the Canadian receiving Office

From: Canadian Intellectual Property Office

With respect to Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) international applications and pursuant to PCT Rule 17.1(a), the applicant may submit to the Canadian receiving Office (CA/RO) electronic priority documents that are digitally signed with the certificate of one of the following issuing Offices:

Electronic priority documents may be uploaded into ePCT so that they will be contained in an ePCT filing package, together with the international application, for submission to CA/RO at time of filing through CIPO's e-filing using the normal two-step process. Alternatively, at the time of filing or post filing the electronic version of the priority document can be submitted to CA/RO on various electronic media as specified in Annex F of the PCT Administrative Instructions.
