CMRRA is owned by SXWorks, a subsidiary of SoundExchange. As part of its acquisition of CMRRA, SXWorks established a Canadian Publishers Committee (“CPC”) to oversee and maintain the advancement of the interests of music publishers’ business in Canada. The CPC provides direction on Canadian advocacy, tariff and rate-setting activities, and continues to foster and leverage the favourable environment in which CMRRA has attained some of the highest royalty rates in the world to the benefit of all of its music publisher clients.
The members of the CPC are appointed by the Board of the Canadian Music Publishers Association. The committee is currently composed of the members shown below.
