In August 2013, OPIC, the Institute for Intellectual Property of Canada (IPIC), the International Federation of Intellectual Property Attorneys (FICPI) and the International Association for the Protection of Intellectual Property (AIPPI) invited volunteers of the IP community to be part of three working groups identified in the project.

The working groups will present a written report at the end of March 2014. This report will include elements to consider, recommendations and possible solutions to problems, and will be addressed the Commissioner of Patents, Registrar of Trade-marks and President of CIPO. It is expected to make a consultation on the report’s recommendations.
