Legal Rights in a Photograph (Canadian)
"Canadian law has moved to granting more and more rights to the person who takes the photograph, as opposed to the person who commissions it or the person who is in it. The 2012 modifications to the Copyright Act grant broad rights to the creator of a photograph, and only very narrow rights to the person who pays for its creation. As for the subject of the photograph, Canadian courts will not go (or at least have not gone) very far in granting rights to someone who is pictured in a photograph. There might be a basic requirement to get the subject’s consent for the taking and initial use of the photograph, and there might be a requirement to get someone’s consent for the commercial exploitation of their image. But if these conditions are satisfied, then the photographer’s copyright will be treated as absolute. Just as the writer of a book has certain rights that usually supersede the rights of the publisher or the subject of the book, the photographer has rights that usually – not always, but usually – supersede the rights of others."
