This presentation will discuss the upcoming changes to Canadian copyright law as a result of the implementation of the Canada-United States-Mexico Agreement (CUSMA). We will discuss how the change in the term of copyright protection will impact the Canadian library and archival communities, and explore possibilities for mitigating the harms to the public domain. Participants will also learn about the copyright advocacy efforts of the CFLA copyright committee, and will be encouraged to share their own copyright challenges that arose during the COVID-19 pandemic.
