Canada Music Fund

The Canada Music Fund (CMF) ensures that a diversity of Canadian music artists connect with audiences everywhere.

The CMF has two main components: Individual Initiatives and Collective Initiatives.

These components are delivered through the Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent on Recordings (FACTOR) for the Anglophone market and the Fondation Musicaction (Musicaction) for the Francophone market.
