Yes, guidelines are similar and the Fair Dealing educational exceptions outlined in the Copyright Act of Canada are applicable in both the face-to-face classroom and the online learning environment. It is important to ensure your use of copyrighted material falls within these exceptions and follows best practices. Please see MSVU's Fair Dealing Policy below as a quick reference or check out the "Know Your Rights When Using" section of our Copyright and Fair Dealing Guide on handling various types of content and formats. For questions, or for assistance with securing permission to use material in your classroom that is beyond Fair Dealing exceptions, please email
