SOCAN is pleased to see new measures announced today by Heritage Minister Mélanie Joly as part of the new Creative Export Strategy. SOCAN has long been encouraging the government to address the export of our cultural goods; as such, the announcement offering new tools to achieve this end is welcomed.

“With the new technologies, the world is within the reach of Canadian Creators, and providing them with the means to make their mark on the international stage is a winning strategy,” said Eric Baptiste, SOCAN’s Chief Executive Officer. In SOCAN, the Government of Canada will always find a partner committed to further developing markets for our Canadian Creators, both at home and abroad.
