2017 Year in Review – Ontario Live Music Strategy

Music Canada Live continues to lead, with the Province of Ontario, the development of a Live Music Strategy. The goal of the strategy is to capitalize on the energy and potential of Ontario’s live music sector by establishing a roadmap of actions for industry to take with the support of government, to grow Ontario’s live music sector. The Strategy will set out a vision for the next wave of growth in the sector, by laying out a vision, identifying priorities, reflecting all key parts of this complex ecosystem, recommending actions, and fostering collaboration. The end result, to be released in March 2018, will be a plan for growth that includes clear, measurable targets.

We also expect this to inspire other provinces to begin this important work, with leadership from Music Canada Live and active participation from members.
