CPDL was closed in 1990 and finally abolished in 1 August 1993 (SC 1991, c.38, Secs. 35 to 39; PC 1993-1571, 21 July 1993). CPDL was established to make available to the public through licensing arrangements with industry, the industrial and intellectual property which results from publicly funded research and development. CPDL was originally created to handle patentable material of the National Research Council of Canada and other government-financed research. The passage of the Public Servants Invention Act of 1954 made CPDL the prime patenting and licensing agency for inventions by public servants which, by that act, belong to the Government of Canada. CPDL also entered into agreements with various universities, provincial research organizations, and other publicly financed institutions to assess, patent and license their industrial and intellectual property.Finding aid:Additional information:Source:Government
