How Sign-Up Works

You will need to:

  • Provide personal information, including your SIN
  • Demonstrate eligibility
  • Provide ISBNs for the books your are registering
  • Calculate the percentage share of your contribution
  • Provide supporting materials: photocopies of the title pages, copyright pages and tables of contents (if applicable) of all the titles you are registering

Once you sign up for the program, you will hear back from us a year later notifying you of your eligibility and letting you know whether you have qualified for any payments.
