About the CCMIA
Formed in 2002, the Canadian Council of Music Industry Associations (CCMIA) is a national council representing the provincial and territorial music industry associations (MIAs) in Canada, including Alberta Music, Manitoba Music, Music and Film in Motion, Music BC, Music Nova Scotia, Music NWT, Music PEI, Music Yukon, Music/Musique NB, MusicNL, MusicOntario, and SaskMusic.
Together, the CCMIA’s member MIAs work with more than 10,000 artists, managers, publicists, distributors, record labels, studios, photographers, producers, engineers, and other industry professionals across the country. With day-to-day contact with the actual people working in the industry, including extensive experience supporting emerging artists and professionals, MIAs are on the front lines of the development of Canada’s growing music industries – direct experience that makes CCMIA members some of the most knowledgeable about the issues facing Canada’s music industries.
The CCMIA was formed to provide a collective voice for Canada’s MIAs, to drive progress on common issues, such as copyright reform, and to support the growth of Canada’s music industries in all regions of the country. The CCMIA supports these goals through advocacy and research, export development, and the administration of music programs such as the Canadian Songwriter Challenge.
