CIMA Advocacy

Canadian Independent music, created and produced right here in Canada, is an important national asset, and like our natural resource based industries, requires investment and support in order to thrive.

CIMA’s advocacy efforts ensure that our governments do exactly that. CIMA represents approximately 300 English-speaking Canadian companies and professionals who are working to make Canadian independent music recognized and commercially successful on a global scale.

We use our expertise and experience to advocate on behalf of the Canadian Independent music industry. By sitting on numerous industry boards and committees, and by informing the government through position papers and presentations, CIMA brings about real and effective change that benefits its members and the industry as a whole.

A collective voice is stronger than many individuals working alone, and therein lies the power of CIMA.
