Your company should become a member of Music Publishers Canada today! Here is a list of the 2018 benefits.
For over 60 years, the Music Publishers Canada has been the voice for music publishers operating in Canada. We continue to work directly with the federal and provincial governments and with regulatory bodies to advocate for the needs of our members. We will ensure that our members are kept up-to-date with legislative and regulatory decisions, both in Canada and abroad, that will impact the way you do business.
Canadian Music Publishing Study – This study provides revenue, human resource and other statistical information on the Canadian music publishing industry. We believe it is essential to track this data regularly so that we can assist our members with changes in the industry and create greater awareness of the music publishing industry and its economic and cultural importance.
Export Study – In 2018, Music Publishers Canada released a qualitative study that focuses on how independent Canadian music publishers “export” musical works and generate revenue from foreign sources. As export becomes a growing source of revenue for music publishers, it is vital that we define what “export” means and roll out information on best practices.
Women in the Studio Program – We’re launching our first Women in the Studio Program in March 2019. Five producer-writers will participate in a curated series of technical and networking opportunities at the JUNOS, CMW and other events throughout the year. This initiative allows our members to aid in the development of emerging women producer-writers on their radar. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram at @canmuspub to hear more about the program.
Create – Launched in 2016, Create provides B2B opportunities for members to connect with international music and film contacts, and facilitates collaboration between Canadian songwriters and their international counterparts during songwriting camps.
2019 Markets: the UK, Nashville and Calgary
Music Tech Summit – As the nature of how music is created and distributed in Canada is undergoing extraordinary change, the Music Publishers Canada aims to provide members with access to Music Tech Summits to help them stay ahead of digital trends. Music Publishers Canada will host at least one Music Tech Summit per year.
Canadian Music Café – Members have the opportunity to submit songwriters from their roster for participation in the Café, as well as attend the networking party, Music Publishers Canada Brunch, and two full days of performances. – www.canadianmusiccafe.com
