As a general rule, a work is protected by copyright in Canada for the life of the creator plus 70 years after his or her death (70 years begins at the end of the calendar year of the author's death). In the case of multiple authors, it is 70 years after the last author to die. After this period of time, the work enters the public domain.

*note* Due to the recent USMCA agreement, this may change; we will post updates as they become law.
