Canadian universities are continuing research collaborations with Chinese institutions despite government efforts to impose stronger measures against potential technology transfer to the regime and address related national security concerns, the House of Commons science committee heard.

Jim Hinton, an intellectual property lawyer and assistant professor at Western University, emphasized this finding during his testimony at the House Standing Committee on Science and Research on Oct. 4.

“I discovered that as recently as a few weeks ago, there have been new patent applications published, listing Huawei as owner, with Canadian university researchers as inventors, including those from the University of Toronto, UBC, Queens, Ottawa, McMaster, and Western,” he said.
