That's correct, Steve.

I made a request to the LWG about this time last year about the Toronto and Ontario licences, and they're still working on them. There is another way around the issue: publish as CC-BY 4.0 (as some Quebec municipalities have done) and supply OSM with one of these waivers: https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Licence/Waiver_and_Permission_Templates cheers, Stewart _______________________________________________ Talk-ca mailing list Talkemail@example.com https://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/talk-ca
