The intangible economy has outpaced the value of the physical economy, making the protection of intellectual property an absolute necessity to Canada’s competitiveness.

Our Position

To unleash the potential of Canadian innovation, we must promote and strengthen the protection and utilization of intellectual property. We support a multilateral approach to intellectual property protection, in line with global norms. Domestic intellectual property policy should operate seamlessly in a global environment and encourage the continued viability of multinational businesses with a strong presence in Canada.

Policy Committees & Working Groups

An important complement to our policy team, many significant policy public positions originate from our committees and working groups

Innovations & Intellectual Property Committee

Our Innovations & Intellectual Property Committee monitors and responds to international and domestic policy issues related to the digital economy, telecommunications, emerging technologies, health innovation, data governance and privacy as well as international developments that could affect the intangible economy and the intellectual property rights of our membership.
