Starting in February 2022, Class 1 and Class 2 agents should log in to the Agent Portal to renew their licence(s). The deadline to renew is March 31, 2022 and licenses will remain active until that date. Licensees will also be required to complete a few declarations, as required by the CPATA By-laws.
Annual fee amounts for this year are:
- Class 1 – $1000 for one licence (patent or trademark)
- Class 1 – $1500 for a dual licence (patent and trademark)
- Class 2 – $100 (per licence)
It will be possible for firms to pay on behalf of individual agents. Details will be provided early in the new year.
Licence renewals for Class 3 trainee agents will take place later in 2022 and is based on the date of registration (more details to come).
An e-mail with full instructions for renewal will be sent to licensees and firm representatives at the end of January.
Agents who fail to comply with any of these requirements by the March 31st, 2022 deadline, will be automatically suspended.
