Yes. The Copyright Act allows you to play a sound recording or live radio broadcasts in class as long as it is:
- For educational purposes,
- Not for profit,
- On University premises, and
- Before an audience consisting primarily of students.
However, if you want to use music for non-educational purposes, for example, for background music at a conference or in an athletic facility, licenses must be obtained from the copyright collectives SOCAN and Re:Sound.
