Some of these are colleges and not degree granting universities. But most by far appear to be the latter. This is a very substantial number of the degree granting universities in Canada that are members of AUCC outside of Quebec - at least 25% it would appear - ranging from very large to very small and of all shapes and sizes.

Access Copyright doesn't operate in Quebec, where its counterpart COPIBEC licenses post secondary institutions.

  1. Access Copyright does operate in Qu├ębec. It simply doesn't cover French-language works.

  2. Robert is wrong. Access Copyright does not license in Quebec, in either language.
