Fair Dealing Works Website Launched!

In collaboration with other post-secondary education stakeholders, CICan has supported the creation of a website, a new copyright awareness campaign called Fair Dealing Works!

The Fair Dealing Works campaign brings together student leaders, post-secondary institutions, academic staff, and copyright experts and practitioners together to stand up for educational fair dealing rights. Fair dealing is a crucial part of our educational ecosystem. Current Canadian laws ensure that there is a balanced approach between creators’ rights and the rights of users
