Re:Sound Presents at CMW’s “What’s Next for the Federal Report on the Canadian Music Industry?”


In June 2014, the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage released a Report on the Canadian Music Industry. The final report contained 10 recommendations commenting on a range of issues including the Copyright Board, record production, digital services, music tourism and music education. How should the government implement these recommendations? Which are the most important and who would be the appropriate partners to assist in implementation?

Five industry leaders made a case for one recommendation that they think is important and responded to questions from two of the Members of Parliament who authored the report.

Moderated by Graham Henderson, President & CEO, of Music Canada, panelists included: Darlene Tonelli, Lawyer & Founder, Inter Alia Law, Erin Benjamin, Executive Director, Music Canada LiveGord Brown, Member of Parliament for Leeds, Grenville, Canadian House of Commons – Leeds, GrenvilleHolly Nimmons, Executive Director, Coalition for Music Education in Canada – Music Makes UsIan MacKay, President, Re:Sound Music Licensing Company, and Rick Dystra, Member of Parliament for St Catharines, Parliament of Canada.
