While the physical SFU Libraries are temporarily closed due to COVID-19 measures, the Copyright Office is happy to continue to support you and respond to your questions remotely. Please feel free to contact us via email during this time. We can also arrange a phone call or video conference.

The Copyright Office welcomes all questions about copyright from instructors, staff and students. We can help you apply Canada's Copyright Act and SFU's copyright policies to your teaching, learning and research as well as your authoring or creation of copyright protected works. The Copyright Office also welcomes requests for presentations or workshops for your class or department year-round in any length and format, such as full-length workshops, shorter meeting presentations or more casual "lunch & learns."
