The Provincial Archives and its staff complies with the federal Copyright Act and related regulations.

There is no limit to the number of reproductions that a patron may order. However, the Archives is restricted to making a single copy for a patron's research and private study.

In cases where a copy of an archival document that is not in the public domain is required for a purpose other than research or private study - for example, when a copy of a photograph is required for publication in a book or on a website, or for broadcast purposes – the onus is on the patron to clear copyright with the current copyright holder. 

Please consult the Copyright Act and seek legal advice where questions regarding the interpretation of copyright arise. Researchers must accept responsibility for determining copyright obligations.
