Original language of petition: English
The Government would like to thank the petitioners for expressing their concerns on the issue of educational copying and publishing.
The Government understands and appreciates the importance of Canadian creators. Their work contributes to the promotion of Canadian culture and history, at home and abroad.
The Minister of Canadian Heritage and the Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry are pursuing a mandate to further protect artists, creators, and copyright holders.
The federal government seeks to ensure that Canada’s copyright marketplace framework laws foster vibrant cultural industries that support creativity and innovation, fair remuneration for creators for the use of their works, and a modern and innovative marketplace that can efficiently serve copyright users. We remain mindful of the need for Canada’s copyright regime to foster a sustainable publishing industry, with fair payment for creators and an efficient way for teachers and students to use copyrighted works.
As stated in Budget 2022, the Government is committed to taking concrete actions to address these concerns while recognizing the complexity of the marketplace and the many interests involved.
The Government will continue to engage with affected stakeholders while working to address this issue in a timely manner.
