Canadian copyright law currently states that a work enters the public domain 50 years after the death of the author (among other provisions). So Ransome's works are not protected by copyright in Canada. They would still be protected under other jurisdictions. Under Canadian law Trease's works would be protected for a good many years yet as he did not die until 1998.
However under the new US/Canada/Mexico trade agreement there is a provision for this protected period to be increased, but as the agreement ha not yet been ratified, there is no legislation pending to do this.
