Copyright media clearance

Learn more about how the government accesses news sources while respecting copyright rules.

Government departments and agencies are required to monitor the public environment to help identify and track issues.

To respect copyright laws and regulations, Public Services and Procurement Canada manages a common service on behalf of the government which provides access to a selection of news sources. This includes national and regional media coverage in English and French, online news, magazines, newspapers, newswires, and television transcripts.

The program's expenditures are approximately $7.5 million per year.
