Friday, May 25, 2018

Access Copyright is truly touched to learn that it will be receiving an honorary lifetime membership to the Association of Canadian Publishers (ACP).

“On behalf of the board and staff of Access Copyright, I would like to express our deep appreciation for this unexpected honour from the ACP,” said Roanie Levy, Access Copyright’s President and CEO. “The ACP is a tireless advocate for publishers committed to producing content that speaks to all Canadians, and has also been a staunch supporter of the principles upon which Access Copyright was created: upholding the rights of Canadian creators and publishers to ensure the continued creation of great Canadian content.”

The honour, which is given in recognition of those who have been deemed to have made important contributions to the ACP and to Canadian publishing, will be accepted by Cameron Macdonald, the Chair of the Access Copyright Board of Directors, at the ACP’s Annual General Meeting in Montreal on June 5.

“As we approach our 30th anniversary, we want to thank the ACP for this meaningful award. Everyone involved with Access Copyright have always strived to be a strong voice for Canadian creators and publishers while seeking new opportunities to ensure that they are fairly paid for the use of their works. It is deeply gratifying to have this work acknowledged by our esteemed peers,” said Cameron.


For almost 30 years, Access Copyright has facilitated content use for educational and professional purposes. We have helped people make customized use of published materials combined with an assurance that the original creators and publishers also benefit, so that they can continue creating new and innovative works. This is vitally important to a strong Canadian culture and to all who rely on quality publications.
