Description
Despite Government of Canada commitments to Open Government initiatives, Section 12 of the Copyright Act specifies that any work prepared or published by the Canadian government is subject to crown copyright. This means that substantial reproduction of government information beyond fair dealing and stated terms of use requires permission. In addition, and according to the terms of use found on Government of Canada web sites, it is unclear if fair dealing is an option when the use is commercial in nature.
