The Copyright Act affects how material can be used in the classroom. Your Copibec licence helps you ensure you’re using content properly.
As a teacher or professor in a Quebec educational institution, you benefit from licensing agreements that Copibec has signed with the Quebec ministry of education or with your college, CEGEP or university. Those licences give you permission to use content legally, conveniently and without any undue administrative burden while acknowledging the work done by authors and their publishers. You can therefore rely on your Copibec licence for confirmation of how content can be used and how the parties have interpreted the provisions.
Making large-print copies of books is allowed under the Copibec licence for preschool, elementary and high school institutions. At the college and university levels, institutions should contact us to request permission.
In compliance with the Copyright Act, Copibec offers a service that lets you obtain works from a number of publishers in an appropriate format within a reasonable timeframe and at a reasonable cost. The documents are in PDF format without technological protection measures (TPMs) so they are compatible with technology tools that provide features such as reading, writing and proofreading support.
