Copyright links & info for teachers
Here are some really useful resources /links for teachers to better understand how the Canadian Copyright Act affects the use (reproduction, performance and publication) of resources in the classroom. Did you know that Canadian fair dealing guidelines (not to be confused with the US Fair Use policy) include education for insubstantial amounts, and that there are education exceptions permitting a broader use of resources?
