Why Institutional Repositories? 

Depositing your manuscript in an institutional repository presents an alternative option to making your research 'open' to publishing in an open access journal.  Just like publishing in an open access journal, publications deposited in institutional repositories are immediately and easily available to the public online.  Institutional repositories are crucial for those who would prefer not to publish in OA journals but need to comply to Canada's new Tri-Agency Open Access Policy. 

Many Canadian institutions have their own institutional repository - check out CARL's comprehensive list to see if your institution does.
