Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Grants are provided to organizations or individuals for educational initiatives that concern Canadian songwriters, composers, lyricists and music publishers. Grant recipients presenting activities that include performance of music are expected to insure that at least 50 percent of the total duration of works performed are written (or arranged, in the case of public-domain works) by Canadian songwriters, composers and lyricists.

Applications for activities that include performance of music must not be dramatic ("grand-right") performances, such as operas, ballets and musical theatre. Only non-dramatic ("small-right") performances are eligible.

Applications for commissioning of works, radio or audio-visual productions, recording projects or purchase of instruments or equipment are ineligible.

Pre-Application Information:

Applications must be submitted to the SOCAN Foundation before the start date of the activity.

In most cases, the SOCAN Foundation supports only a small percentage of an applicant’s activity budget.
