We are pleased to announce that SOCAN (the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada) has formally joined the Focus On Creators coalition as a supporting partner!

SOCAN is the Canadian copyright collective that administers the performing rights of more than 130,000 members by licensing the use of their music in Canada.

“On the eve of copyright reform in Canada – with the upcoming review of Canada’s Copyright Act in 2017, and the government’s Canadian Content in a Digital World consultations – there’s no more important time for SOCAN’s songwriter, composer and music publisher members to make their voices heard by signing on to the Focus On Creators initiative,” said SOCAN CEO Eric Baptiste in a release.

We welcome the support of SOCAN, and encourage their creator members to add their names to our joint letter to Minister Joly at https://focusoncreators.ca/sign-the-letter/.
