Copyright and Terms of Use

Many of the photographs and other archival records reproduced and available on Winnipeg in Focus are in the Public Domain, meaning the Copyright has expired. Copyright restrictions may apply in other instances. It is the responsibility of the user to determine whether use or publication of material complies with existing regulations such as the Copyright Act.

All images, including those in the Public Domain, must be credited to the City of Winnipeg Archives and have a citation indicating the title and location code within the City of Winnipeg Archives. Preferred citations would also record the provenance of an image, noting when it is part of a larger body of material, and appear as follows:

• [Identification of image]. [Provenance of image]. City of Winnipeg Archives [Location Code].
• National Park Orchestra, 1937. Owen Clark Collection. City of Winnipeg Archives (A1648 File 14).

The following credit line may also be used, “Photo [or image] courtesy of the City of Winnipeg Archives.”
