The Intellectual Property Institute of Canada (IPIC) office is located in the city of Ottawa, Ontario, on the traditional, unceded territories of the Algonquin Anishinaabeg people.
Turtle Island (North America) is land that has been inhabited by Indigenous People from the beginning of time immemorial. The Indigenous People are the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on Turtle Island. We encourage you to take a moment to recognize the land you reside and work on.
IPIC honours the Algonquin Anishinaabeg and all First Nations, Inuit and Métis people for their important contributions to this land and to the fields of intellectual property, traditional knowledge and cultural expression.
