Support Copyright Fair Dealing Provisions


School boards in Manitoba and across Canada strongly support the fair dealing provisions contained in the Copyright Act. These provisions, which have been upheld by the Supreme Court of Canada but which are currently under attack by the publishing industry, enable schools to provide students with broad and comprehensive classroom resources, both digitally and in print, at a sustainable cost. Lend your voice in support of copyright fair dealing provisions by contacting federal officials or your MP.
