The Ontario Music Fund (OMF), administered by the Ontario Music Office (OMO),  is aimed at strengthening and stimulating growth in Ontario’s music companies and supporting this growing sector. The Fund is designed to drive activity and investment and to support Ontario’s music companies and organizations in expanding their economic and cultural footprints within Canada and around the world.

The OMF is structured to complement other public funding programs and aims to address investment gaps at key phases of company and industry development cycles.   It provides support through four (4) program streams to music companies (record labels, music publishers, music managers, artist entrepreneurs, music promoters, music presenters, and booking agents), and music industry trade, service, event and training organizations.

Research grants are also available to incorporated not-for-profit industry organizations undertaking research initiatives that support or complement the mandate of the OMDC.
