Canadian Copyright Consultations & webcasts

Copyright Consultations

Town halls will be held in Montréal and Toronto. Canadians will be able to participate in these important discussions in person, or live over the Internet via interactive webcast.

The Government of Canada is hosting a nationwide consultation on copyright modernization.

This website will help Canadians find important resources about copyright and the modernization process to date. It will record the progress of these consultations so that you can follow the major issues shaping the conversation. You can stay in touch by following our RSS Feed.

You can participate in a few different ways:

  • The online submission centre: This gives you an opportunity to respond to a few specific questions on copyright. You can also submit your own paper or report to us so that other people can view your work.

  • The online discussion forum: This interactive venue gives you a forum to talk to the government and to each other online.

  • The multimedia centre: This will hold the audio and video transcripts of the round tables and town hall meetings. (Check back soon!)

  • In a city near you: Minister Clement and Minister Moore will be hosting two town hall meetings (one in Montréal and one in Toronto) later this summer. There is limited space available for members of the public — but even if you can't be there in person, you can still participate via web streaming.
