Access Copyright's Affiliates: Canada's Storytellers, Chroniclers and Educators

Access Copyright represents over 11,000 Canadian writers, visual artists and publishers.

These talented professionals are our nation's storytellers, chroniclers and educators.

They create, through hard work, inspiration and skill, the textbooks, novels, plays, poetry, newspapers, magazines, children's books and more that Canadians read in print and online every day.

They inform, illuminate and inspire readers across the country and around the globe and are an integral part of a vibrant, active Canadian culture.

Access Copyright is proud to be a collective voice of writers, visual artists and publishers as we work to ensure that literacy, learning, reading and writing continue to be indispensable parts of our society.

We make interaction with content simple, and compensating creators and publishers easy. These investments ensure the continued creation of new and innovative works for Canadians.
