Grants for Canada music creators and publishers for programs to educate, publicize, disseminate, and present Canadian music. Funding is intended to support the recognition of Canadian music composers and writers in broader society, and support the expansion of Canadian music within and outside of Canada.

This multi-project program has four independent components. Each project must nurture an environment supportive of Canadian music creators, Canadian music publishers, and audiences.

- Music Presentation events can be, for example, a showcase, single concert, concert series or a festival. To be eligible these events must include at least 50% of Canadian music.

- Education activities can range from a) presenting workshops for songwriters, composers, writers and publishers to b) the introduction of Canadian music in schools.

- Publication activities may include research and writing towards the publication of books or journals (printed or electronic), production of performance scores (printed or electronic), and digital dissemination of audio or audio-visual recordings.

- Dissemination activities should have a strong emphasis on digital content and can include requests to support the recording of live concerts devoted to Canadian music for online viewing and other initiatives.
