Intellectual Property and Entrepreneurship in Canada

When and Where

Tuesday, March 23, 2021 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm


Entrepreneurship is an important part of growing one’s economy. Studies show that entrepreneurship can be learned, it is a skill. In Canada, one of the things that has been holding our entrepreneurs back is intellectual property and data protection. This webinar will focus on the importance of IP protection for entrepreneurship. In particular, we will discuss the intellectual property environment in Canada and existing support for firms. Panelists will discuss issues relating to their firm’s ability to secure IP especially as it relates to IP education and the role of government in supporting IP protection.
