WIPO informs about the accession of Canada to the Hague Agreement for international registration of industrial designs. This makes Canada the 55th member state. The agreement will come into force for the country on 05.11.2018.
As it is well-known the Hague Agreement gives an opportunity for an easier filing of international applications for designs.
The concrete accession is one more step by Canada to facilitate all international applicants of intellectual property after the accession to the Madrid Protocol for international protection of trademarks.
