Canadian Update on Trademark Law for U.S. Practitioners

September 20-28, 2018
Various U.S. Cities


In early 2019, Canada will fundamentally change its trademark regime, removing use as a registration requirement, and acceding to the Madrid Protocol, the Nice Agreement, and the Singapore Treaty. Participating in these treaties will help modernize Canada’s intellectual property systems. Not only do the changes have obvious implications for filing in Canada in 2019 and thereafter, but they impact filing strategies now. Attend an INTA September roundtable near you to learn more about these significant changes in Canadian trademark law and how best to navigate them for your clients.


The registration fee is US $50 for members and US $75 for non-members per person/per session and includes a buffet luncheon. Unless otherwise stated, roundtables are held from 12:00 pm–2:00 pm. Check your location for more details; check your city for details. Please bring a photo ID to all roundtables in order to enter. 

INTA is seeking volunteers to host this Roundtable in various U.S. cities. All you need to do is secure an available conference room, order lunch and facilitate the conversation using the outline that has been developed. INTA will reimburse you for the cost of the meal. Please contact if you are interested in hosting this Roundtable.
