Remuneration Models for Artists and Creative Industries in the Context of Copyright

Ottawa, April 10, 2018 -

The Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage is Launching a Study on Remuneration Models for Artists and Creative Industries in the Context of Copyright.

On 21 March 2018, the House of Commons Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage (the Committee) received correspondence from the House of Commons Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology (INDU), in relation to the statutory review of the Copyright Act. To fulfil the review of the Act, INDU asked the Committee to conduct a concurrent study on remuneration models for artists and creative industries.

At its meeting of 29 March 2018, the Committee welcomed this invitation to review remuneration models and the opportunities from new access points for artists and creative industries in the context of the Copyright Act.

The Committee will call upon a broad range of stakeholders and experts on these matters.

The Committee aims to begin this study in spring 2018, and continue in the fall session.
