The Songwriters Association of Canada (S.A.C.) began in the mid 1980's when a group of songwriters led by Terry McManus were concerned with the lack of input songwriters were having in the music industry, as well as the apparent absence of real copyright registration in Canada.
With the help of Stephen Stohn (lyricist and lawyer) and esteemed songwriters such as Eddie Schwartz and Rich Dodson, the Songwriters Association of Canada was founded (originally under the name Canadian Songwriters Association). Gradually the organization has grown from establishing an industry presence to the nurturing of aspiring songwriters including workshops and song review opportunities through song assessments and “Date with a Demo.”
The S.A.C. also established the “Canadian Song Depository” (now the Song Vault), a Canadian copyright registration service that offers a date and time stamp of songwriters' works. In addition, the S.A.C. hosts Bluebird North activities across the country bringing together some of Canada's most inspiring songwriters to share their songs and stories.
