Consultations launched on reforming Copyright Board of Canada

Government News Release | August 09, 2017

Getting the Copyright Board system right will enable creators to get paid properly and on time. It will create new business opportunities in the current fast-moving economic environment. It will also mean more money for creators and users and less money being spent on legal fees.

To reach that goal, the Honourable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development, and the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage, jointly with the Copyright Board of Canada, today launched consultations on proposed legislative and regulatory changes to the Board’s decision-making processes.
