We are excited to focus this week on grants and music associations for Canadian artists.
Today we’re talking about CIRAA (Canadian Independent Recording Artists Association).
“We’re helping to empower Canada’s Independent recording artists.
Our programming is designed to improve Canada’s independent artist development system through education, opportunity and support.”
CIRAA is a great way for emerging artists to do things they simply cannot do on their own.
We sometimes call them the ‘cool uncle’ of the canadian music industry and they can truly
give opportunities that otherwise seem like they only happen to ‘that other band’.
Checkout the available grants and resources to emerging canadian artists!

Current and relevant information directly from some of the country’s leading industry professionals and artists. Featuring 8 hours of advice, anecdotes and expertise on the new realities facing today’s independent recording artists, The New Indie is CIRAA’s smash hit podcast series and one of our flagship educational initiatives.
Live performance is the driving force behind your career as an independent artist. Playing new cities and venues and breaking new ground is essential to building your audience. It can also be financially challenging. The CIRAA Groundbreaker Grant rewards hard-working artists for their live performances in the form of a monthly micro grant.
Members are eligible to receive $100 for each gig that they have played in the previous calendar month, at a maximum of $1,200 per artist annually. Applications are open from the 1st – 10th of each month and fifteen winners are selected through a lottery draw at 4pm on the 15th. Application is fast, simple and free.
Career enhancing conversation from and artist-to-artist perspective. CIRAA’s Mentorship Program gives members the opportunity to work one-on-one with an experienced Canadian musician. Advice, insight and guidance; the program is designed to help independent recording artists navigate their way through the today’s greatest career challenges.
