  • The permission request template may be used to request permission to copy/reproduce copyright-protected material where the copyright holder is known.
  • The template request must be adapted to your specific request by providing all of the necessary information (see text in blue) and may be sent via email or as a hard copy permission request letter.
  • A copy of any permissions that you obtain for the use of copyright protected materials for BCIT learning and teaching purposes MUST be retained for your records.
  • If you have any questions about the permission request template or require assistance in seeking permissions, please contact for assistance.

Request for copyright permissions check

We will determine whether the work you wish to copy is covered by a BCIT licence agreement. Normally we will get back to you within three to five days. For some requests, additional time is needed to conduct a thorough search of permissions.

  • Please include as much information as possible: author, title, date, publisher, place of publication, ISBN, page numbers, web address, description of digital content, etc.
  • If this is a rush request, please indicate a date by which a response is required.
