The Copyright Law allows Canadians to make copies of copyrighted materials for the purposes of “education, research, private study, criticism or review, news reporting, parody or satire” (Section 29). As a student, you would qualify under "private study".

However, the amount that you copy must be FAIR. For information on how to determine what amount of copying would be considered fair, please see the Fair Dealing page (So what can you do? section) of our e-Learning module on Copyright for Seneca College students.
