Yes, CMRRA issues licences for the sale or other distribution of audio products in Canada. If copies are pressed in the U.S. and some or all of the units are shipped to Canada, you will need to obtain a licence from CMRRA and pay royalties on those copies imported in Canada. For more information, please visit our Need A Licence? page.
For the licensing of small quantities, you will need to apply for a licence under CMRRA’s “pay-as-you-press/import” plan, and you will need to supply us with a cross-border confirmation instead of a pressing order. Please see our Pay-As-You-Press page for more information.
