Welcome to the MusicOntario Community Resource Portal! Our mandate is to provide tools for education and professional development to our membership, and to grow Ontario’s emerging music industry at a grassroots level. Whether you’re an artist or a young professional starting out in the music industry, there’s a lot to learn in order to understand how it all works. Here, you will find information on the organizations, programs and concepts that make our industry tick, videos of topical discussions with industry pros and information on professional development events and funding and showcase deadlines.
As a grassroots organization, we hope to get to know the communities in markets across Ontario by creating local networking and learning opportunities through panels and workshops. Through this community resource centre, we will provide our members the opportunity to learn from the comfort of home or on the go!
This centre is always a work in progress and we will be adding more content as often as we can!
