With the help of its 24 Committees divided into various areas of expertise, IPIC engages with government, elected officials, courts and global IP groups, advocates for the interests of the Canadian IP Profession, develops and delivers high quality training programs and webinars, promotes awareness of the value of IP and publishes quality publications while providing unmatched services to its members.
Communities are groups of members with a common professional interest. They can be based on issues, practice profiles, region – or any topic that meets member needs. Structured differently than Committees, Communities can have an unlimited number of members join. For more information, click here to view IPIC's Policy on Communities.
IPIC’s Committees and Communities are its lifeblood with membership being exclusive to IPIC members. To learn more about IPIC's member benefits and become a member please click here.
