About Intellectual Property Ontario

Intellectual Property Ontario is a board-governed provincial agency that will help the postsecondary education and research and innovation sectors generate, protect, manage and commercialize intellectual property (IP).

Intellectual Property Ontario provides expert IP advice and access to IP resources to help researchers and companies better understand how to:

  • maximize the value of IP
  • strengthen their capacity to grow
  • compete in the market
  • enhance research and commercialization outcomes

The creation of Intellectual Property Ontario is a recommendation from the Expert Panel on Intellectual Property's report on the issues and opportunities to protect home-grown innovation and strengthen commercialization.
