Intellectual Property Office

Copyright is an intellectual property right that is very important to TRU faculty, staff and students as we are all creators and consumers of various forms of intellectual property. Infringing copyright is a serious matter and TRU requires faculty, staff and students to comply with the Copyright Act of Canada, and to work within our TRU Fair Dealing Policy.

The Intellectual Property Office is committed to ensuring that the TRU community is both compliant with, and benefitting from, copyright law in Canada.

We pursue these goals through:

  • Educating the TRU community about copyright law and best practices.
  • Maintaining a rights and permissions database.
