Patent Renewal Rules at the CIPO
Until recently, it was necessary for payment of renewal fees on pending applications to be made through the recorded agent. This is still the case for a small number of patents which are still being processed under the old rules. However, for all future renewals, RenewalsDesk can pay direct to the Canadian Patent Office on your behalf.
Renewal fees in Canada are calculated from the filing date of the application (or the effective filing date if the Canadian case has an earlier parent). Fees are due both before and after grant.
Different fees apply dependent on whether the applicant is considered a small or large entity. The tables below detail each fee option. Further information on Entity Types can be found here.
Like most jurisdictions, late payment is possible in Canada, and the “grace period” is six months, with an additional late fee of $150 (CAD).
