I am a Student Life staff member and want to show a movie to fellow staff for the purpose of leadership development. Do I need a license?

Possibly. While this use may qualify as fair dealing for education, this particular exception has yet to be interpreted by Canadian courts and the scope of “education” in this context remains unclear. In any event, whether a licence is required will also depend on whether your use of the movie is qualitatively fair. Fill out the Film Screenings on Campus Form and a member of the Scholarly Communications and Copyright Office will review the details of the screening you are planning. You can also contact Joan Links of the Media Commons at joan.links@utoronto.ca or a member of the Scholarly Communications and Copyright Office at copyright@library.utoronto.ca for help in determining the term of copyright for any particular audiovisual work.
