CASSA is the Canadian organization of school system leaders that promotes and supports quality education for the success of each student.
Hoping that you and your families are staying safe and keeping healthy.
Given the pandemic and its considerable impacts on our lives, CASSA has decided to postpone the 2020 conference and hold it at St. Andrew’s By The Sea in 2022. We will continue with the 2021 conference in Montreal. Those of you who have made hotel reservation will receive an email from the hotel confirming your cancellation.
We are disappointed at having to reschedule the 2020 conference yet know that it is the right decision for everyone’s health while preventing CASSA from incurring financial penalties.
Copyright rules for educators have changed significantly in recent years. While teachers have new opportunities to use copyright-protected materials in their lessons, they also have responsibilities. There are limits to what can be copied and communicated in the classroom. Teachers must know what they can and cannot do with the copyright-protected works of others. Failure to comply with copyright law can result in a teacher, school, or school board being sued for copyright infringement.The fair dealing provision in Canada’s copyright law permits teachers to copy and communicate short excerpts from copyright-protected works provided the dealing is “fair.”
FairDealingDecisionTool.ca helps teachers decide, with a few clicks, whether the fair-dealing provision in the Copyright Act permits copying of short excerpts from print materials, artistic works, or audiovisual materials for students without needing to obtain copyright permission.
