Membership

Regular membership of the Songwriters Association of Canada costs the same as a cup of coffee per month and gives you the opportunity to connect with both accomplished and aspiring music creators, publishers, A&R managers, and other music industry professionals. But networking isn’t the only reason to join.

There are a number of other benefits to joining such as use of SongVault to protect the ownership of your music copyright and SongPitch to help get your work in front of clients. We share information on songwriter agreements and a range of other educational areas and facilitate workshops and listening events such as Songbird North.
