The Canadian Music Centre is the catalyst that connects you to the ever-evolving world of musical creation in Canada through performance, education and promotion. The CMC provides unique resources for exploring, discovering, and performing Canadian music. We are passionate about nurturing a musical community that honours our legacy and supports the professional development of Canadian musicians and composers.
The CMC has been supporting, preserving, and celebrating the works of Canadian composers since 1959. As proud and passionate advocates, we offer innovative resources for discovering, exploring, listening to and playing Canadian music online and in five regional hubs across Canada. These resources include library services, music services (sales and rentals of scores, books and recordings), distribution services (Centrediscs, Centrestreams and support to Indie labels), education and outreach, “CMC Presents” concert series and workshops, Associate Composer program, and communications tools to promote contemporary musical creation in Canada and abroad. Founded in 1983, CMC Ontario Region works province-wide in collaboration with artists, educators and organizations to present performances, workshops, and other activities.
