Grant Description

The program supports the recording of music by Ontario-based musicians including composers, songwriters and beat producers. The program has two categories:

  1. Demo/EP recordings:
    EP recording of a series of songs that may be released individually or as a short album, 25 minutes maximum, intended for public release
    Demo recordings for the purpose of demonstrating newly developed work for labels, funders, presenters, promoters, festivals, etc. These recordings may or may not also be intended for public release
  2. Full-length album: a single work or collection of compositions, 26 minutes minimum, recorded for public release in physical format or an online platform. The album is only considered complete after it has been publicly released.
    Note: Projects are only considered complete once the recording is publicly available (except for demos not intended for release).
