Are you a seasoned regulatory affairs leader seeking a stimulating new challenge in a greenfield space?  The Canadian music industry is in an exciting place, experiencing unprecedented growth and evolution, specifically in the digital space. Concurrently, Canada’s regulatory system is in the process of being strengthened by the creation of new policies covering once unregulated digital spaces. Combined, this has created a unique opportunity to bring the best of Canada’s terrestrial regulatory system to the digital landscape where artists and fans are meeting.
