Program priorities include: assisting emerging and established composers and other music creators; support for new creation in a wide range of music genres and styles; and support for projects that display exceptional creativity in composition and song-writing. By increasing the availability of new music created by Ontarians, the program also supports activities that contribute to arts education, public participation and community involvement in the arts in Ontario.
