The Canadian Copyright Policy Moot is a unique bilingual student competition created by Heritage Canada and Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada in collaboration with the University of Ottawa Centre for Law, Technology and Society.

As part of this Moot, teams of students will research and prepare a thorough policy report, prepared as a Memorandum to Cabinet, under the supervision of university professors, departmental officials and policy experts. 

The thematics are provided by the Copyright and International Trade Policy Branch at Canadian Heritage and the Marketplace Framework Policy Branch at Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada, corresponding to current policy issues identified by the branches in the course of their work on copyright. 

The student teams will be called to present orally their work before a panel of federal policy experts – including high level decision makers from the government and the Copyright Board of Canada for the final round.
