Toronto, March 19, 2013: Music Canada President Graham Henderson will release a report presenting five key directions for the Canadian music industry during the State of the Industry address at Canadian Music Week on Thursday, March 21, 2013.

The music industry has undergone massive changes with the shift to digital technologies and platforms; all aspects of the industry have been disrupted. Yet many of the programs and supports designed to support this important cultural and economic sector were designed for the analog era.

With this in mind, Music Canada has, through months of research, interviews and expert submissions, developed seventeen policy recommendations in the following areas: music education, digital innovation, music tourism, export expansion and interconnected tax credits.
