Manitoba Music Launches Two New Programs

Posted on

Manitoba Music is excited to announce the creation of two new programs: Music Industry Internship Program and the Strategic Consulting Program.
The Music Industry Internship Program will support a paid internship at an established and recognized music company in Manitoba. The purpose of the Music Internship Program is to support the creation of sustainable jobs in Manitoba’s music industry, to mentor new workers in the music industry, and to provide human resource assistance to Manitoba companies with a shortage of skilled labour. Applicant companies may apply for up to 75% of the wages for a paid Internship, to a maximum of $15,000. The program is intended to fund one intern for a one year term, commencing between April 1, 2010 and June 1, 2010. Contributions will be in the form of a grant. Deadline: April 15
The purpose of the Strategic Consulting Program is to support Manitoba music industry companies in the engagement of business development consultants with the goal of increasing company capacity, accelerating company growth, and/or strengthening the company’s business model. Applicant companies may apply for up to 75% of consulting fees, to a maximum of $6,000. Contributions will be in the form of a grant. The program is intended to fund a consulting contract taking place over a four to six month period within Manitoba Music’s fiscal year (April 1 – March 31).

All guidelines and applications can be found under the Funding Programs section under the Resources tab on and in the Manitoba Music Resource Centre.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to meet with the Program Manager prior to applying.
