Musicians’ Pension Fund of Canada
When a musician uses a TMA149 or CFM/AFM negotiated agreement or when they use a TMA149 Live Performance Contract for Canada the purchaser or engager is compelled, in addition to their fees, to contribute to their pension fund. Musicians can be vested in as little as two years worth regular contract work.

How to make MPF Canada Pension contributions:
- Use the LPCC (Live Performance Contract for Canada).
- Fill in the accompanying LPCC-Pen and have the Purchaser/Employer sign to enable you to make a pension contribution on her/his behalf. Registered Canada Pension plans are “Employer” Plans, requiring employers to make contributions on behalf of employees. However, The LPCC-Pen allows you to make pension contributions on behalf of your employer.
- Submit both contracts to the AFM local office with a cheque for your contribution (up to 12% of scale).
These are the files you will need if you plan to contribute to your pension fund:
