Intellectual Property Strategy, Development, and Support Program

In partnership with Intellectual Property Ontario (IPON), the Office of Research Services, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship is excited to introduce a cutting-edge service for our industry partners. Our goal is to help businesses develop a robust intellectual property strategy that empowers them to promote and commercialize their technology and products on a global scale, backed by solid legal foundations.

An IP strategy is a vital part of any business. Recent statistics from Statistics Canada have shown that businesses with an IP strategy are 2x more likely to be considered a high growth corporation.
