Fair dealing and educational exceptions in the Copyright Act are available to members of the Langara community for the purposes of teaching and training. However, these usually cannot be employed for general college uses, such as extracurricular events.

Some of Langara's existing licenses permit use outside of the classroom setting. Where a use is not covered by a license, fair dealing, or educational exceptions, the Copyright Office can assist employees in acquiring permission from the copyright owner.

Everyone can take advantage of public domain, open access, and flexibly licensed content. See our Alternatives Guide for suggestions.
