Serving Your Copyright Permission Needs

Access Copyright provides two basic types of licences for your print and digital permission needs in Canada (excluding Quebec where licensing is managed by Copibec):


A yearly, renewable licence that allows you advance permissions. For more information please contact us via phone at 416-868-1620 (toll-free 1-800-893-5777) or via email.

To get permission for uses that go beyond the terms of your comprehensive licence, please complete the appropriate form.

Transactional (pay-per-use):

A licence for one-time use that can provide authorization to make a copy of copyright protected material for reproduction or republishing purposes. Permission must be sought in advance of any copying and payment. Payment for these licences must be made with a credit card or wire transfer before a licence will be issued.

Step 1: Estimate a price quote using the pricing information found on our pricing page. The cost depends on prices set by the copyright owners of the materials you wish to copy from. 

Step 2: Complete the appropriate form (see below) for your request and e-mail it to

  • Request Form for Reproduction Use: direct copying of a publication which includes photocopying, posting to a password protected site (intranet), e-mailing, scanning, saving to a USB and projecting onto a screen via overhead or PowerPoint.
  • Request Form for Republishing Use: to commercially publish content that has been previously published.
