FACTOR is a private non-profit organization dedicated to providing assistance toward the growth and development of the Canadian music industry.
FACTOR’s programs provide financial support to Canadian recording artists, labels, songwriters, publishers, event producers and distributors. Whether an artist is looking to record a demo or a full-length sound recording, market an existing album, or go on tour at home or internationally, there is funding available.
FACTOR is committed to reflecting the diversity of the Canadian population in its programs and operations. We are committed to ensuring universal access to all funds and services, including all musical expressions and talent. We will also in our work encourage these values of diversity and inclusiveness within the broader Canadian music sector.
“FACTOR has been pivotal in liberating me as independent artist and I want to thank them for giving me and other artist’s the financial ability to be creative which is a remedy that serves humanity positively. Music is medicine and to have the support to leap forward and continue to make music that I love is a huge blessing. Thank you!” — Jully Black
