Currently Licensed Canadian Colleges and Universities

The following is a list of the colleges and universities in Canada currently licensed for educational uses of copyright-protected materials through either an Access Copyright collective licence or the interim tariff agreement imposed by the Copyright Board of Canada.

To be clear, by the terms of existing agreements, these educational institutions have cleared limited uses of copies, and ARE compliant with TWUC's understanding of and position on current Canadian copyright law. They are NOT currently depending on the aggressively expanded interpretation of fair dealing that many other schools have adopted in order to not sign collective licences, or to opt-out of the interim tariff.

Copyright licences are always under review and occasionally up for re-negotiation. Each of these institutions will soon have to decide whether or not they will sign a new licence with Access Copyright, or comply with an existing or new tariff.

TWUC Members: If you are staff or alumni of any of these institutions, or if you ar you family members are students at one of these schools, please consider writing a letter to the institution's president and/or governing body (a simple Internet search should provide you with the proper address) encouraging them to continue to properly licence the use of copies within their institution.

IMPORTANT: If you do NOT see the name of an institution to which you have some relationship on this list, that school has likely either opted-out of clearance through the interim tariff, and/or refused to negotiate or sign an Access Copyright collective licence. For such institutions, a letter expressing your own and TWUC's disagreement with such a position is encouraged.

For either of those letters, you may wish to paraphrase elements of publisher Don LePan's letter to universities
