Canadian musicians and record labels enjoy a tremendous amount of support through various funding agencies. Even with recent cuts and changes, there are a number of avenues available to find support for your music work.

These programs are important because traditional business and banks loans are usually not available for artists and music companies. Grants and loans can help with product creation, and getting your music into the market.

In this workshop, representatives from Manitoba Film & Music, FACTOR, and the Canada Council will present options for receiving loans and grants for music projects. We will look at what programs are right for certain projects, what makes a strong application, how the jury process works.
