Yes, however the term is the same in the European Union and many other countries. I see Canada has a provision for use of works for which the copyright holder cannot be identified, but a board decides if the would-be user has made sufficient attempts to locate the copyright holder, and will require payment in any case. From a study of orphaned copyright works by the U.S. Library of Congress Copyright Office:
An example of a system that enables the use, in certain circumstances, of orphan works can be found in Canada's copyright law. The copyright law has a specific provision permitting anyone who seeks permission to make a copyright use of a work and cannot locate the copyright owner to pebreastion the Canadian Copyright Board for a license.-7The Copyright Board makes a determination as to whether sufficient effort has been made to locate the owner. If so, the Copyright Board may grant a license for the proposed use. It will set terms and fees for the proposed use of the work in its discretion and will hold collected fees in a fund from which the copyright owner, if he or she ever surfaces and makes a claim, may be paid. It should be noted that since the enactment of these provisions in 1990, the Copyright Board has issued only 125 such licenses. More information about the Canadian approach can be found on the Copyright Board Web site at:
