(from their mission statement)
Music Nova Scotia is a non-profit organization that has worked since 1989 with a mandate to encourage the creation, development, growth and promotion of Nova Scotia’s music industry. Music Nova Scotia exists to grow and nurture the Nova Scotia music industry, to retain our own natural resource and promote investment, by:
- Providing education, information and resources to our membership
- Acting as the advocate for the industry to all levels of government and private enterprise
- Supporting membership in the promotion of the export of Nova Scotia music regionally, nationally and internationally
Membership is mainly made up of Nova Scotians but some join us from other regions of the East Coast as well as across Canada. We are songwriters, musicians, agents, managers, promoters, distributors, photographers, associations, lawyers, accountants and other industry professionals.
