Canada’s Intellectual Property Firm

Christine Genge discusses the Hague Agreement and Canadian Innovation

Ottawa partner Christine Genge will be participating in the panel discussion The Hague Agreement: Fueling Canadian Innovation today at the Library and Archives Canada in Ottawa.

David Lametti, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, will be providing opening remarks and representatives from businesses with registered industrial designs and other forms of IP protection in robotics, artificial intelligence, and other highly innovative fields will sit on the panel alongside Christine.

The event follows up on Canada’s recent accession to the Hague agreement at the beginning of November, an international treaty which will make it easier for businesses to protect their industrial designs.

Opening remarks will take place at 6pm in Salon A — Margaret Avison Room.
