“POLICY RECOMMENDATIONS

Instituting the Artist’s Resale Right would allow visual artists to share in the profits being made from their work, and align Canada with our trade partners.

Proposed course of action:
-That the Minister of Canadian Heritage present the Artist’s Resale Right as an addition to the Copyright Act. “
