Cultivating the Success of Professional Musicians
Canadian Federation of Musicians, Toronto Musicians’ Association, and the Musicians’ Pension Fund of Canada
Canadian Federation of Musicians
The Canadian Federation of Musicians [CFM] (formerly referred to as AFM Canada) is the leading professional organization of its kind available to Canadian musicians. As a complementary office of the American Federation of Musicians of the United States and Canada (AFM), CFM is managed by AFM’s Vice President from Canada (VPC) and offers a comparative level of service that is uniquely focused on matters of concern to the Canadian membership. As the distinctly Canadian division of AFM, the CFM negotiates fair agreements for Canadian members, works diligently to protect ownership of recorded music, secures benefits such as health care and pension for its membership, and actively lobbies legislators on Copyright reform and other matters of interest to professional musicians living and working in Canada.
The Canadian Federation of Musicians helps thousands of musicians who need assistance with any number of issues related to the recording and performing of their craft. With specialized services ranging from immigration, media recordings, symphonic and theatrical matters, touring, freelance musicians and membership services, contract negotiations and administration, royalty streams, and more, CFM helps its membership take best advantage of all career opportunities and optimize the level of their professional working environment.
Whatever your issue, CFM is committed to raising industry standards and placing the professional musician in the foreground of the Canadian cultural landscape, and is here for its members to minimize potential threats and maximize opportunities.
