SOCAN / Re:Sound

SOCAN - The Society of Composers, Authors & Music Publishers of Canada - collects the fair compensation for Composers, Authors & Music Publishers of Canada and is the Canadian copyright collective for the public performance of musical works.  

Re:Sound is the Canadian not-for-profit music licensing company dedicated to obtaining fair compensation for artists and record companies for their performance rights.

Whether the music is live, recorded or broadcast, every event is legally obligated to submit licensing fees for the public performance of copyright-protected music. Tariffs that are collected by the Municipality are paid directly to SOCAN & Re:Sound.

To ensure that your organization pays the correct amount for your specific event type and venue – regardless of whether the facility or your organization maintains a full-time license – you must check the appropriate box on the application form and complete and return:

  • Music - SOCAN & Re:Sound Form
Any outstanding SOCAN / Re:Sound fees must be paid before you are allowed to book the facility.
