The Canadian Music Publishers Association (CMPA) is a membership-based organization, founded in 1949, that ensures the views of music publishers working in Canada are heard. It is its mission to create business opportunities for its members and to promote their interests and those of their song writing partners through advocacy, communication, and education.
CMPA’s Board of Directors fulfills the important function of appointing the members of CMRRA’s Canadian Publishers Committee (« CPC »). The CPC was established by SXWorks to provide direction to CMRRA on central issues impacting music publishers’ business in Canada. The CPC exercises considerable discretion and autonomy on Canadian advocacy, tariff and rate-setting activities that, in turn, will shape CMRRA’s licensing and royalty collection mandate on behalf of its music publisher clients.
