Intellectual Property Policy

Intellectual Property policies differ by province, and by institution. Policies reflect college/institute collective agreements. For many colleges, IP policies have been developed to identify and protect academic products through copyright. IP related to collaborative applied research activities with industry or community partners tends to be developed through agreements.

Many colleges have posted their policies and procedures on their websites. Please review the websites of colleges/institutes within your province/territory to see if they have their IP policy posted.
