Powering change: Women in innovation and creativity

Led by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), World Intellectual Property (IP) Day is celebrated every year across the globe. It serves to promote the role of IP in stimulating innovation and creativity. It is also an opportunity for IP offices, inventors and enterprises, big and small, to connect with each other and discuss how IP contributes to the flourishing of innovations that help shape our world and improve the way we live.

This year, the focus is on Powering change: Women in innovation and creativity. We are proud of the many Canadian women inventors, entrepreneurs and artists with registered IP, from copyrights to patents to trademarks.

On April 26, join us in promoting IP and women in innovation!
