Canadian Music Organizations

Founded in the early sixties, Music Canada is a non-profit trade organization established to promote the interests of its members and their artist partners.

Music Canada members:

Among many other projects in support of Canadian musicians, Music Canada is calling for the Canadian Government to rebalance the music marketplace and restore fairness to the creators of music.

Addressing the value gap will continue to be Music Canada’s primary focus for 2019, through the review and by other means. They are also committed to improving the music ecosystem in a number of ways, working with industry partners and all three levels of government to create a more prosperous, more sustainable, safer, and more inclusive music industry.

The goal of addressing the value gap in Canada is to create favourable legislative, regulatory, institutional, and funding frameworks so that the entire Canadian music industry can prosper. For example, at the institutional level, they are working to enhance the effectiveness of the Copyright Board of Canada. Legislatively, they are working to ensure the Copyright Act review yields real and meaningful results, strengthening the business climate for music creators.

Erin Benjamin, President & CEO says, “We’re leading discussions and advocating where necessary – for example, with Health Canada and the cannabis industry. We’re building a better relationship between SOCAN and the live music sector, advocating for fair policy and legislation on issues that impact the sector at every level of government.

We’re also continuing to support municipalities in their efforts to become “music cities” and working with the tourism sector to leverage the value of live music more effectively and drive music tourism.
