Canadian Heritage has granted The SOCAN Foundation $132,000, via the Canada Performing Arts Workers Resilience Fund.

This generous support will allow the SOCAN Foundation to offer, in early 2023, its Creative Entrepreneurship Summit – a virtual educational gathering to help music creators and live workers develop their entrepreneurial capacity.

“The SOCAN Foundation extends its gratitude to Canadian Heritage, which allows us to serve the community with robust programs that will be funded by the Government of Canada,” said Charlie Wall-Andrews, Executive Director of SOCAN Foundation. “We look forward to supporting the sector and collaborating with industry partners.”

The announcement was made by the Honourable Pablo Rodriguez, the Minister of Canadian Heritage of Canada, on Oct. 18, 2022, in Montréal. Marc Ouellette, the President of SOCAN’s Board of Directors, was in attendance on behalf of both SOCAN and the SOCAN Foundation.
