Government Publications

With regard to government publications, anyone can copy federal laws and judicial decisions without charge, and without asking permission, provided the copy is accurate and it is not represented as an official version. "Permission to reproduce Government of Canada works, in part or in whole, and by any means, for personal or public non-commercial purposes, or for cost-recovery purposes, is not required, unless otherwise specified in the material you wish to reproduce" (GoC). See this page for more information on permissions for Government of Canada publications.

The statutes, regulations and judicial decisions of the Province of Ontario may be copied without permission for non-commercial use. At this time, copying other provincial or territorial laws or judicial decisions requires the permission of the appropriate government. If you have any doubt, contact the government publisher and ask for permission.

You may seek permission to use or reproduce works of the Province of British Columbia through this form.
