FACTOR is dedicated to providing assistance toward the growth and development of the Canadian music industry through the contributions from private radio broadcasters as well as two components of the Department of Canadian Heritage’s Canada Music Fund.
Support is provided to Canadian recording artists, songwriters, managers, labels, publishers, event producers and distributors through various programs. Whether an artist is looking to record a demo, full length sound recording, market and promote an already existing album or showcase and tour domestically and internationally, funding is available. FACTOR supports many facets of the infrastructure which must be in place in order for artists and music entrepreneurs to progress into the international arena.
FACTOR primarily supports Canadian musicians (as individual artists or bands) to record and produce primarily English-language, independent sound recordings nationally and internationally.
