University of Alberta External Relations uses Canto as a digital asset management system. It is easy to use, accessible and provides a centralized location for both internal and external audiences to access and download the university’s brand and visual assets including brand guidelines, logos, templates, photos and more.

Adding your project’s digital assets to Canto offers the following benefits:

  • Allows continuous growth of the university’s common asset library
  • Ensures licensing compliance
  • Ensures a single source location for asset management
  • Maintains FOIP compliance per the Information and Privacy Office

If you have recently completed a photo or video project with the Digital and Creative team and want your photos uploaded to Canto, please review the intake process.

Watch our Canto user training video for how to use the system.

Refer to the University of Alberta Brand Guidelines (downloadable via the Canto portal links below) for information on preferred and proper use of the university’s visual identity assets. Adhering to these guidelines enables the University of Alberta to present a consistent and professional visual message to its audiences.
