The Patent Prosecution Highway (PPH) is an initiative that provides a means of significantly accelerating examination of patent applications if examination work has already been conducted at another intellectual property office.

Under PPH agreements, if claims of an application have been found to be acceptable by a first intellectual property office, an accelerated examination can be requested at a second intellectual property office. Canadian patent applications will be examined in accordance with the Canadian Patent Act and Patent Rules and the Canadian Intellectual Property Office's (CIPO) Patent Office Practice.
