Available copyright resources for teachers


The CMEC Copyright Consortium considers copyright and the responsible use of fair dealing a priority.

Education departments and ministries, as well as school boards across the country, encourage awareness of and respect for copyright. Teachers and school staff should know the basics of copyright law, because they set the example for their students.

Teachers are encouraged to download a personal copy of the Fair Dealing Guidelines, the Teachers’ Use of “Consumables” poster, and Copyright Matters! and to visit the Fair Dealing Decision Tool online for any questions regarding the use of copyright-protected materials.


Know your copyright law!
