A large number of rightsholders will soon be receiving royalties as part of the 2022 education sector payment.
Our largest annual payment
The education sector payment is the largest amount that Copibec distributes to creators each year.
This year, for instance, over $8.7 million will be paid out to the relevant copyright owners.
Authors and publishers whose works have been used in the education sector — covering all levels from elementary to university — are eligible for royalties under the agreements between Copibec and the Quebec ministries of education and higher education as well as the colleges and universities themselves.
