Canadian copyright law continues to evolve in response to existing and emerging technologies, international agreements, and the need for reasonable balance between the rights of users and the rights of copyright-protected works.
Resources on this page take into account Canada's copyright law and the 2012 Supreme Court of Canada decision on fair dealing.
These resources provide practical information for teachers on their rights and responsibilities with regard to the use of copyright-protected materials in education institutions. Students, parents and education administrators may also find this information useful.
