The program’s priorities are to support music created by Ontario composers/songwriters as well as works by other Canadians. This includes projects that feature non-Ontario composers (a compelling case should be made for how the project will add to what is currently available to the public), projects that enhance the range of recorded music available to the public (locally, nationally, and internationally), and projects that are ready or nearly ready to begin recording.

Deadline: November 9, 2021, 1 p.m. ET

Funding: $4,000 (Demo/EP recordings) or $10,000 (Full-length album)
