Over the past two decades, open access has gained prominence around the world. However, its adoption in Canada lags that of other countries. Using data from Dimensions and Érudit, this article provides an overview of open access dissemination in Canada, focusing on the effect of institutions, language, and funding. French-language papers and papers from Quebec universities are more likely to be open access, while papers from engineering-focused institutions are less likely to be open access. With respect to funders, those in the health sciences have a higher compliance with open access. The article concludes by discussing disciplinary differences in open access dissemination, the low compliance with open access mandates in Canada, and the role of Érudit.
