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.

Budget 2019 Supplemental Funding in 2019‑2020 and 2020‑2021

As announced in the Federal Budget 2019, the CMF received an additional $10 million in 2020‑2021 and 2021‑2022, to support the production, promotion and distribution of Canadian music. This investment supported more Canadian musicians and music entrepreneurs, and helped with the rising costs of marketing and promotion necessary in the music industry today.

Extension of Supplemental Funding in 2021‑2022

On November 30, 2020, as part of the Fall Economic Statement, the Government announced that it will provide a one‑year extension of the $10 million non‑recurring supplemental funding to the CMF, for 2021‑2022.
