16 November 1976: Canada Granted Patent Number One Million

Posted on

Forty years ago, Canada granted its 1 millionth patent. Today, the Canadian IP Office celebrates this milestone, and invites you to watch their new video which appears on the Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada channel on YouTube.

The video provides general information on patents in Canada, including what they can protect, the exclusive rights they grant, and the role of innovation in Canada.

As the video suggests, you can learn more about patents at Canada.ca/patents

(And, of course, HOLBECHE LAW will be happy to help in this respect too 😉 )
