FACTOR (the Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent on Recordings) is a public/private partnership that supports the production of sound recordings by Canadian musicians and helps Canadian music companies make recordings available to a wider public.

Dedicated to providing assistance toward the growth and development of the Canadian music industry, FACTOR administers funds from the Department of Canadian Heritage through the Canada Music Fund, and from Canada’s private radio broadcasters. Support is provided to Canadian recording artists, songwriters, artist managers, record labels, music publishers, distributors, event producers, and music industry organizations (like Music Yukon!) through its great variety of programs.

To learn more about FACTOR programs or for help in the application process, contact Music Yukon at office@musicyukon.com. To contact the FACTOR office in Toronto, you can call the toll-free number: 1-877-696-2215.
