CIRAA Links. News. By Music Canada on Jul 06, 2011 Through this site we champion the music industry in Canada and support our members’ efforts to rebuild the marketplace for recorded music.


Music Canada, formerly known as the Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA) which was founded in 1964, represents Canada’s major record labels and many of the leading independent labels and distributors in this country. We will continue to be an inspirational advocate for our members while also becoming a trusted source for information regarding the music industry and respected forum for dialogue about the opportunities and challenges facing our reinvented industry in Canada. This website will, over time, provide a comprehensive resource on the music industry in Canada with information for those within the industry, and outside of it. One of the most exciting resources is a 35+ year archive of Gold/Platinum Awards in Canada. Come back often. Participate in discussion. We’d love to know what you think.
