This could affect many of us who research in United Sates, Mexico and Canada...

The recent agreement by the United States, Mexico and Canada, replacing NAFTA, known as USMCA, has a provision extending copyright in Canada for an additional 20 years. Before the agreement copyright in Canada was 50 years after the death of the author now it is 70 years from the death of the author.  Copyright applies to all original literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works. 
Gail Dever's blog, Genealogy à la carte lists the general categories as:

·         literary works such as books, pamphlets, computer programs and other works consisting of text
·         dramatic works such as motion picture films, plays, screenplays and scripts
·         musical works such as compositions with or without words
·         artistic works such as paintings, drawings, maps, photographs, sculptures and plans

The trade agreement still has to go through the approval process which the signatories are hoping will be done before the change in president's in Mexico and possible change of majority party  in the US Congress.

To read the trade agreement see: In total, the USMCA is 1,809 pages —1,572 pages for the treaty itself, 214 pages for annexes, and 23 pages for side letters. 
The copyright provision is  in section 20-H-7 page 20-33 under chapter 20 intellectual property rights.
