Warning: Non-solicited invoices relating to trade-mark registration applications

The Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) has been made aware of several incidents of what appear to be fee solicitations from private sector companies with respect to Canadian intellectual property applications.

If you receive an invoice concerning an application filed with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office (CIPO) from anyone other than CIPO or your agent, please contact either the Client Service Centre at 1-866-997-1936 (or 819-934-0544 for international calls) or your agent prior to responding.
