- preparing patent or trademark applications;
- paying government fees;
- docketing deadlines;
- assisting with the administration of contentious proceedings;
- preparing correspondence with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office and
- drafting letters to clients.

Continuing Professional Development
In lieu of annual continuing education requirements in the early years of our program, to maintain the Certified Canadian Patent Administrator or Certified Canadian Trademark Administrator designation you must hold an IPIC membership in good standing in the Intellectual Property Institute of Canada (IPIC). By doing so it will ensure you stay informed about our regular stream of IP related education and services.
