Are you a published author or illustrator from Canada? If you haven't already, consider signing up for these two programs. They send annual payments for the lending and copying of your work!
The Public Lending Right (PLR) Program
PLR sends yearly payments to creators whose works are in Canada’s public libraries.
Access Copyright Payback
Access Copyright licenses the copying of art, writing and illustration to educational institutions, businesses, governments and others. The proceeds gathered when content is copied, remixed and shared are passed along to the copyright-holders through the Payback program.
