This year, 123 recipients will receive more than $14 million in grants from the Ontario Music Fund, has announced by Premier Kathleen Wynne during a press conference on March 25. Announced in 2013, the Ontario Music Fund is a three-year, $45-million grant program.
Premier Wynne announced the grants at Coalition Music in Toronto, one of the companies that received support through the Ontario Music Fund last year. The fund provides grants to music businesses — large and small — that produce, distribute, and promote Ontario-based music and artists. This support is meant to help create a business environment where Ontario’s artists from diverse musical genres and backgrounds can grow and thrive, while helping the industry become more competitive internationally.
