CPATA’s Strategic Framework for 2023-2025

The Board of Directors approved CPATA’s first Strategic Framework at its May 26 meeting.   This medium-term framework for 2023-2025 outlines CPATA’s priorities as we transition from a new regulator into a maturing organization. It ensures that CPATA focuses on initiatives that are essential to accomplishing our public protection mandate. During this phase, we will complete the start-up build of our regulatory infrastructure and concentrate increasing resources on professional development and competency as well as professional regulation initiatives.   This will include the redevelopment of the qualifying examinations, an evaluation of current licensing paths, an exploration of potential alternatives for entry-to-practice and a policy regarding continuing professional development. Another focus will be on core elements of professional regulation, such as further development of complaints and discipline experience through case management, the provision of education on and fine-tuning of the Code of Conduct, support of the continued evolution of patent agent and trademark agent privilege and the monitoring and addressing of unauthorized practice. These elements of professional regulation will support the rigour and sophistication of the patent agent and trademark agent professions and will increase public confidence in the IP services they provide. 

This Strategic Framework is an essential roadmap that outlines the path that CPATA will take to become a world-class regulator and improve the IP ecosystem through professional regulation.”
