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 do not cover general college uses, such as extracurricular events.

Some of Langara's existing licenses do permit use outside the classroom. However, if a use is not covered by a license, fair dealing, or educational exceptions, the Copyright Office can help employees acquire permission from the copyright owner.

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