Where has the time gone? It seems like only yesterday I became involved with FACTOR, now 25 years later it has evolved into this incredible success story that has people around the world singing, dancing and enjoying Canadian music. Those who have gotten involved with FACTOR know how it has (and will continue to) work in tandem with its funding partners, the Department of Canadian Heritage and Canada’s private radio broadcasters. Think about it, we have the music industry, the government and radio broadcasters all working together. And it has worked! We have also enjoyed a very strong relationship with the music industry who has shared their challenges with FACTOR which in turn has helped to shape the programs and funding provided by the foundation. For all of you that have participated at the funding, Board, NAB, Committee or jury level, a big thank you for all you support over the years. Through the various positions I have served at FACTOR, I have had a tremendous opportunity to have a front row seat to the development of the Canadian music industry over the past 25 years. I am very proud to lead this organization and look forward to seeing what the future holds. I do want to take a moment to acknowledge both the past and present members of the FACTOR Board of Directors, National Advisory Board and staff. They are the backbone reason that has enabled FACTOR to accomplish what it has. To all the artists, labels, managers, distributors’ etc. thank you for allowing FACTOR to participate in your dreams. Larry Leblanc was commissioned to write a piece on FACTOR, not the facts on FACTOR but how FACTOR has connected/impacted on the development of the industry. I hope you will take the time to read it. It puts a lot of context to how the industry has developed and some insights into the current challenges facing the industry. FACTOR has stayed the course for 25 years and has continued to evolve along with the music industry. With the current challenges facing the industry, I know that based on what we have accomplished in the past, “all I can say is look out world because Canada is going to be an even stronger force to be reckoned with.” Sincerely,


Heather Ostertag, C.M. President and CEO FACTOR

There is practically nothing drearier than being a developing musical act touring. The physical wear and tear on members is immeasurable. It’s a nether world of loading up rented vans, staying in low-budget rooms, and fighting to be heard by audiences. Artists traveling Canada know where they have been. Summer-time, it’s driving across deserted prairie roads so hot the asphalt and tar have melted. Winter-time, it’s snow storms in Atlantic Canada; snow drifts in northern Ontario and Quebec; and bears blocking the road in the Rockies. It’s driving through the prairies at 25 km. per hour because the roads are so icy you aren’t supposed to travel. “Then, if you are an up-and-coming band, a good opening slot is about exposure,” says guitarist Josh Ramsay of Vancouver-based Marianas Trench. “It’s a series $100 shows. Between gas and food for four guys, $100 is like petty cash. Sell some merch, and you might get your own bed that night. We would not have had the same debut album (“Fix Me”) if we didn’t have tour support from FACTOR early on.” “The Trews may not have seen the inside of a tour bus if it wasn’t for the support of FACTOR,” adds the band’s guitarist John-Angus MacDonald. That Canada is a leading global source of commercial pop and rock music is underscored by the global popularity of Celine Dion, Avril Lavigne, Nelly Furtado, Shania Twain, Nickelback, Bryan Adams, Alanis Morissette, Diana Krall, k.d. lang, Barenaked Ladies, Billy Talent, Simple Plan, Finger Eleven, Deborah Cox, Glenn Lewis, and Three Days Grace- the bulk signed by multinational companies. International markets have also clearly embraced—on varying levels—such musically diverse acts as Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene, Leslie Feist, Patrick Watson, Bruce Cockburn, Ron Sexsmith, Blue Rodeo, New Pornographers, Bedouin Soundclash,


Four foreign-owned multinationals-- EMI Music, Universal Music, Sony BMG Music, and Warner Music—dominate Canada’s music market, and collectively account for 90% of revenue. They have significant advantages, of course, over Canadianowned independent labels. This includes having sales and working capital from their parent company lines; their own national distribution systems; a n d a c c e s s t o d i s t r i b u t i o n n e t works worldwide. In recent years, as the multinationals in Canada cut back on direct signings, the Canadian independent label and artist sector, benefiting from the growth in popularity of MySpace, Last FM, and YouTube, has become the primar y marketing window for emerging Canadian acts. This pivotal role of independents is underscored by the fact that the majority of Canadian jazz, country, blues and classical music is issued by independent sources. Another case in point also is that a coterie of entrepreneurial Canadian indies has developed such significant emerging acts as Joel Plaskett Emergency, Belly, Jenn Grant, K’naan, Nathan, Champion, Dave Gunning, the Golden Dogs, Justin Nozuka, Malajube, Emile-Claire-Barlow, Final Fantasy, Cadence Weapon, the Deadly Snakes, Julie Doiron, Miracle Fortress, Joel Kroeker, and Little Miss Higgins. “I continue to be struck by the supportive nature of the community in Canada,” wrote British DJ/historian Bob Harris in Maverick magazine (Oct. 2006 issue). “My strong impression is that the mix of financial support offered by FACTOR and other funding bodies, alongside Canadian government a c k n o w l edgement and the shared experiences of road and hardship, bond the people who are trying to

Metric, the Dears, Hot Hot Heat, Kid Koala, Buck 65, Sum 41, the Duhks, Tegan & Sara, Alexisonfire, Stars, the Trews, Silverstein, and Tokyo Police Club---the majority being with Canadian-based independent labels. As well, Canada has produced a significant number of folk/roots, jazz, urban, blues and classical performers that enjoy notable careers home and abroad. This includes folk and roots-based Loreena McKennitt, Sarah Harmer, Kathleen Edwards, Paul Reddick, Jesse Cook, the Bills, Blackie & the Rodeo Kings, Jorane, James Keelaghan, Alana Levandoski, and Fred Eaglesmith; George Canyon, the Roadhammers, Michelle Wright, the Wilkinsons, and Shane Yellowbird in country; urban-based K-os, Saukrates, Choclair, Jacksoul, Ivana Santilli, and Massari; jazz acts like Holly Cole, Jane Bunnett, Molly Johnson, Denzel Sinclaire, and Dave Restivo; as well as the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, Measha Brueggergosman, and Angele Dubeau in classical. “The success of Canadian music in recent years has definitely been a factor in HMV Canada's continuing ability to expand into new markets.” From HMV Canada’s website.

make a living in this huge, sparsely populated country. They know that they are not going to sell a million copies of their records in Canada alone, so there is more smalllabel infrastructure, more awareness of the concept of building a following one fan at a time.” “FACTOR has really brought a profile onto Canada,” agrees singer/songwriter Kevin Drew of Broken Social Scene. “Its support has enabled us to evolve, and tour overseas as a nine or ten piece band.” “FACTOR support is pivotal to my career every second of the day,” says country star George Canyon. “Everybody makes the assumption that when you get a major record deal, it’s all buttercups and roses. But the music business is a business, and everything costs money.” A private non-profit organization providing assistance toward the growth and development of the Canadian independent recording industry, the Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent On Recordings (originally called The Foundation to Assist Canadian Talent on Records) is the bedrock of Canada's music industry. It has played a pivotal role in Canada’s emergence as a global music player. “We would not be here if it wasn’t for FACTOR,” flatly states Nettwerk Productions president Ric Arboit. “We would not have been able to do a second or a third Sarah McLachlan album without FACTOR.” “Without FACTOR, I wouldn’t be here,” Bumstead Productions owner Larry Wanagas admits. “It’s that simple.” “FACTOR support is crucial to our label,” adds Jonathan Simkin, president of 604 Records in Vancouver. “It enables us to compete internationally.”

“FACTOR’s help for my first album (“Something Goin’ On Here” in 2003) made a big, big difference,” recalls British Columbia country star Aaron Pritchett. “For recording the album; for touring and having merchandising; and getting distribution of the album. If you compete with everybody on radio, it’s tough. (As a Canadian country artist) you are up against Faith Hill, and Tim McGraw and all of these major country artists that record in Nashville with big budgets.” Jazz saxophonist/flautist Jane Bunnett, adds, “The key moment in my career, for sure, was my first record ‘In Dew Time’ in 1988. The fact we were able to do an international record with FACTOR’s help was pivotal. We wanted to make the best record we could. FACTOR support allowed us to do that.” With a staff of 14, FACTOR administers contributions from sponsoring radio broadcasters as well as two components of the Department of Canadian Heritage’s Canada Music Fund programs. Monies are allocated according to programs overseen by a 11-member board of directors with representation from music and broadcast industries. FACTOR awards loans to Canadian-owned labels, and Canadian artists to aid in the production and marketing costs of recordings and/or DVDs for commercial release. It offers grants to defray production costs related to music videos. It supplies funds for domestic and international business development, and supports m u s i c industry tours and showcases. It also offers funding to three programs developed for emerging recording artists: the Independent Recording Loan, the Professional Demo Award, and the

Professional Publishers and Songwriters Demo Award. As Canada’s music business evolved internationally, and with more opportunities available through more platforms than ever before, the significance and impact of FACTOR funding have also increased. While the major beneficiaries of its programs have been record companies and individual artists, branches of the Canadian music industry that now greatly benefit from its funding include managers, publishers, recording studios, video makers, and music industry associations. “There’s a trickle down effect,” points out Wanagas. “A label applying to FACTOR for a recording will spend money working with studios, producers, engineers, graphic designers, photographers, wardrobe artists, make-up artists, and publicists. If the label applies for marketing support, they spend money on publicists, video directors, editors, and so on.” Blue Rodeo front man Jim Cuddy lauds FACTOR’s support of musical diversity, and the grassroots sector, “You want the representatives of your culture to be more than just the pop hit,” he says. “Although they are a great story, they don’t tell the whole story of what’s going on in Canada. FACTOR has been an enormous boost in telling Canada’s musical story.”

Following the introduction of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission’s 30% Canadian content radio regulations on AM in 1971, and on FM in 1975, many Canadian private broadcasters were, in principle, supportive of the need to help Canadian talent, and the need to build a solid record industry infrastructure. But it wasn’t until the ‘80s, they offered to play a leadership role.

In its 25 years, FACTOR has administered over $112 million in funding to assist in the development of the Canadian artists, and the independent music industry. In 2006-2007, it provided in excess of $14 million to support the sector.

FACTOR was founded in 1982 as a result of discussions between the radio and music industries. It was founded by the Canadian Independent Record Production Assn. (CIRPA), the Canadian Music Publishers Assn. (CMPA), and by three major Canadian broadc a s t i n g c o m p a nies—CHUM Limited, Moffat Communications Limited, and Rogers Radio Broadcasting Limited. 1982 was co-incidentally the year an unprecedented number of Canadian pop artists jumped onto U.S. radio charts and radio play lists. “BEAVER TAKES A BITE OUT OF UNCLE SAM” read a headline in the Toronto Star (April 10, 1982). Seventeen acts made it onto Billboard’s Top 200 album chart in the year, including Rush, Loverboy, Saga, Aldo Nova, April Wine, Chilliwack, Triumph, Eddie Schwartz, and Bob and Doug McKenzie. These successes, followed the next year by Prism, Red Rider, Aldo Nova, and Bryan Adams, as well as the solid domestic successes of such Canadian country acts as Carroll Baker, the Family Brown, and Terry Carisse, however, obscured the fact that competition from the United States, both in terms of superstar product and the dominance of the multinationals, dwarfed Canada’s homegrown music industry. The vast majority of Canadian recordings were then being produced by independent labels operating on shoestring budgets having almost no funds for promotion, sales campaigns and the other functions that enable hits. While the CRTC’s CanCon quota had served an important role in establishing opportunities of exposure for Canadian artists previously, private broadcasters then felt that there were now insufficient new Canadian releases to satisfy their CRTC broadcasting requirements. Due to individual CRTC licensing commitments, these broadcasters were also required to invest in Canadian talent, which included stations supporting local musical events and funding “homegrown” albums of emerging talent.

“We were concerned with the quantity and quality of product available,” recalls Chuck McCoy, then a programmer at Moffat Communications. “There were concerns that the things we were doing with our money weren’t effectively bringing for ward more commercial product for our stations to play.” “We kept throwing things against the wall hoping they would stick,” recalls Duff Roman, then director of industry affairs, CHUM Ltd. “But there weren’t enough records (for airplay). FACTOR was a survival initiative (for broadcasters).” Widely credited with the idea of launching FACTOR is Attic Records co-founder Tom Williams who first broached the idea of a funding foundation with the three co-founding broadcasters. There were also pivotal meetings in the same period between Roman, and Department of Communications policy advisor John Watts; and between J. Robert Wood, program dir. of CHUM Radio, and True North president Bernie Finkelstein. Williams told broadcasters it’d be to their benefit to help improve the quality of Canadian recordings by providing production loans and grants. Recalls Williams “CHUM had just given $30,000 to a big band festival. At the same time, Bob Wood was complaining there weren’t enough Canadian records for CHUM to live up to its CanCon commitment. I tied those two things together. I told him, ‘If you have to spend this money anyway, why don’t you do something to help Canadian recordings?’ Then I met with (vicepresident) Jim Sward at Rogers, and with McCoy and Jim McLaughlin (vice-president Moffat Radio) and got their commitments.” “Tom argued the money broadcasters were spending on Canadian talent was not being

used to the betterment of artists’ careers,” recalls McCoy. “He had the idea that the broadcasters donate money through a board, represented by broadcasters and record company people, and we would fund records. We thought it was a good idea. We had a few meetings with our friends at Rogers and CHUM. That’s how FACTOR was born.” Funds would initially be provided by broadcasters as part of their Promise of Performance (POP) licensing commitment to develop Canadian talent as required by CRTC. “Broadcasters,” recalls Roman, “looked at what commitments under our POPs we could bundle up and make available for funding. It came to a pot of $200,000.” Next came a meeting with executives at CIRPA-- representing the interests of the English-speaking independent music sector in Canada-- and the CMPA at CHUM’s boardroom in Toronto. This led to FACTOR’s founding with a board of seven directors drawn from the radio and music industries. The organization was conamed by Roman--coming up with FACT-and CIRPA’s executive director Earl Rosen who suggested adding “OR” for “on records.” “Already, it was a collaborative effort,” jokes Roman. FACTOR was initially administered by CIRPA, and Rosen was its president from 1982-1986 FACTOR’s sole mandate was to help produce Canadian recordings suitable for radio airplay and retail sales. It started with a single program-- lending money through a jury process for production of recordings. “We wanted records for airplay; the music industry wanted to sell records,” explains Roman. “We didn’t accept the broadcasters’ argument that there wasn’t enough good Canadian music,” recalls Rosen. “We said if there was more money for labels to invest in production then Canadian recordings would sound more like the international

productions.” Adds Rosen, “CIRPA wanted to support all genres of music, and broadcasters agreed to let selection juries recommend projects. Among the first applications approved, there were quite a few that were noncommercial.” FACTOR’s requirement that independent labels or individual artists must own their own masters was an important precedent for the future. Few labels or acts working with multinationals then owned their masters. This requirement would give labels and artists significant clout over the years to negotiate better deals for themselves with multinationals or to better operate as production companies. Soon afterwards, numerous private broadcasters transferred at least part of their local talent budgets to FACTOR. Says Roman, “We enticed other broadcasters saying, ‘Nobody needs another homegrown album. Join us and be part of FACTOR.’” At first, however, there was sizable wariness within Canada’s music industry over the role of FACTOR. ”People were skeptical,” admits Roman. “We did gather credibility because we had some very good people involved from the music industry. And like them, we broadcasters checked our guns at the door." By 1983, with an investment of $530,000 and over 70 recordings, the fund was being hailed as a true sign of industry-wide cooperation and accomplishment. In Oct. 1983, newsletter “The CHUM Report” made note of Canadian private broadcasters’ new responsibility: “If you are not a radio program manager or music director, your foremost concern as a broadcaster is likely not with the rise and fall in output of the Canadian recording industry. But it should be. The connection between the number of new Canadian content albums and singles released every week and success in reaching ratings and sales objectives is far more directly related than many

realize…For radio teams to build audiences and increase revenues, the players we put on the field must be competitive with those of our opponents.” In 1985, private radio broadcasters and French-language sound-recording firms formed MusicAction to create a similar production fund to FACTOR, primarily for French-language recordings and videos.

of $300,000 annually. “It helped us a great deal,” recalls Roman. “Then the feds came the next year, and we started talking real dole.” A significant benefit to FACTOR’s future from the merger was attaining Heather Ostertag, then an administrative assistant at CTL. “My impression when I met Heather was she was a work in progress,” recalls Roman. “A real work horse.” 1985 was the year that Canadian artists had another rush on the domestic marketplace and American hearts again. Bryan Adams, Corey Hart, Rush, Loverboy, Triumph and Gino Vannelli each had a strong year. Domestically, there were also the successes of new Canadian acts such as Platinum Blonde, Gowan, Parachute Club, Luba, Helix, Honeymoon Suite, Headpins, the Payolas and Jane Siberry. Meanwhile, however, there were growing concerns that Canada’s independent sector needed to be more aggressive in providing financial backing for its artists' international efforts. While multinationals have affiliates in most foreign markets, most Canadian independent labels must license their catalogs or specific product abroad either through a single worldwide deal with a multinational or on a territory-by-territory basis with a multinational or independent distributor. For Canadian independents, securing a meaningful U.S. release had long served as a gateway to international success. Yet, despite an impressive international showing by Canadian artists in the 80s, there were still considerable obstacles in securing releases of Canadian masters in the U.S. Generally, Canadian-based independents attempted to build an impressive sales success at home before trying to secure a “meaningful” release from as many of the international labels or distributors as possible, including a coveted U.S. release. But the wall was high. You could count without difficulty the numbers who’d made it over. “When I got k.d. lang signed to Sire Records in 1985, she was one of the few Canadians signed directly to an American


The same year, in order to increase its production fund, and support a wider variety of musical genres, FACTOR merged with the Canadian Talent Library Trust to form the shortly-lived FACTOR/CTL. CTL was a non-profit trust, operated by St a n d a r d B r o a d c a s t i n g t h a t h a d produced 268 popular and light classical albums since 1962, including those by Hagood H a r d y, P e t e r Appleyard, John Arpin, K e a t h Barrie, the Boss Brass, and the L a u r i e B o w e r Singers. CTL had first distributed its recordings only to subscribing broadcast stations, but it began leasing its masters for commercial release in 1966.

CTL provided FACTOR with further funding

company,” recalls Wanagas. “Nobody in Canada even had international releases with the major American companies controlling rights. How things have since changed.” Music video stabilized the record business after its late 1970s/early 1980s slump. Previously, it would have taken years of press coverage, in-store posters, concerts and albums for an act to reach that level of audiences. Music videos, besides selling records, could also fuse an artist’s name with easily grasped personas.

favorable conditions for Canadian-owned companies—one which would act as a stimulant to private-sector funding. The program’s intent was to increase the number of quality pr oduc tion s by providing financial support from demo to master stage, as well as support for videos, touring, and radio syndication. The influx of federal funding ensured FACTOR’s effectiveness and enabled it to expand into other areas. In 1988, for example, FACTOR launched two new programs: Direct Board Approval Loans, intended to assist Canadian-owned active labels; and Professional Publisher and Songwriters Demo Awards to assist Canadian songwriters and publishers to produce quality demos. However, with the public funding, FACTOR had to break away from being under CIRPA’s administration due to its role as a lobby body. Rosen stepped down as executive director. A brief stint in the position by former WEA Music of Canada A&R head Gary Muth led to Roman and Ann Graham, director of Rogers Radio stepping in for a year. This was followed by another oneyear stint by Mel Shaw, past president of CIRPA, and founding president of Canadian Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (CARAS). Shaw recalls that Roman, who was also president of FACTOR for its first six years, was “Not only a driving force, he was a logistical force at FACTOR.” Shaw adds, “Duff knew what the broadcasters wanted to accomplish, and he fully understood the focus of the record industry. The programs were carefully thought out.” While SRDP funding allowed FACTOR to do so much more because there was so much more money available, it also led to the

organization coming under blistering music industry attack, particularly in the regions which cited favouritism. There was criticism that many of FACTOR’s loans, grant applications and approvals were rock music, and that the majority of approvals were from Ontario. “Ever ybody had a different take on what FACTOR should be,” recalls Roman. “The six early years were tough. I had everybody coming to me saying they could do it better.” “Everybody then was going, “Gimme, gimme, gimme,” recalls Ostertag. At the invitation of the Alberta Recording Industries Assn., Shaw returned to his hometown of Calgary to drum-beat FACTOR. He was overwhelmed by the reception. Performers Tom Kelly and Gene MacLellan encountered a similar reception when they went to Atlantic Canada for FACTOR a few months later. After Shaw left, Roman and Graham began seeking a new head administrator, It eventually dawned on them that Ostertag, by now the director of operations, was the obvious choice. “Heather is the classic case of an administrator who did much of the work, knew more than her bosses, and got none of the credit,” recalls Vancouver songwriter Jim Vallance, then a FACTOR board member. “Duff and Ann realized the best candidate was already in the room, and Heather got the job. It’s a bit of a Cinderella story.” “It took us awhile to learn that Heather was really backing up some of the people who passed through here,” agrees Roman.

However, the downside of video was that it substantially drove up the cost of releasing albums. While videos could be produced then for under $10,000, industry standards dictated minimal production costs of $1520,000 with maximum Canadian costs ranging from $75,000-$100,000. FACTOR's role grew significantly in 1986 when, after consultations with the various segments of the recording and broadcasting industries, the Department of Communications (DOC), began the Sound Recording Development Program (SRDP). Under SRDP, the DOC committed itself to invest $25 million over a five year period. The DOC chose FACTOR to administer 60% of the Fund for English & other-language companies, while MusicAction would administer the remainder for the French and other-language projects. The SRDP program offered assistance to Canadian-owned companies for the production of Canadian audio and video music, and radio programs; and to support marketing, international touring, and business development. It was the government’s first comprehensive program directed at strengthening the infrastructure of the Canadian-owned record industry. SRDP was intended to create the most

As FACTOR evolved, a supportive Canadian media for Canadian artists evolved in the ‘80s. This included regular coverage from local daily newspapers and local TV stations and from such music-based national publications as Music Express, Canadian Musician and Canadian Country Music News. Regular national video coverage of Canadian acts was being provided by MuchMusic, MusiquePlus, and the YTV show “YTV Rocks.” The recording industry was then ser viced by two trade publications, The Record and RPM Weekly. Still, despite inroads into markets outside Canada that seemed inconceivable a decade earlier, popularity in Canada often did not hold much weight elsewhere, particularly the United States. Although they enjoyed strong domestic success, recordings by such notable Canadian acts as Honeymoon Suite, Platinum Blonde, Parachute Club, Dalbello, Frozen Ghost, Zappacosta, Headpins, Payolas and Rough Trade disappeared into the backwater of regional American markets. For those Canadian independent labels or acts seeking distribution outlets outside Canada, the obstacles were significant because they lagged behind the multinationals due to lack of finances and contacts. Meanwhile, the escalating production costs of making records and videos, plus the marketing costs associated with co-op retail advertising and in-store positioning, was placing financial stress on many Canadian indies. Independent labels and artists needed the supplemental support that SRDP provided to meet the challenges of the marketplace. Ideally, FACTOR financial funding was deemed a loan which Canadian-owned independent companies could use to record and support Canadian artists and eventually recoup on. However, FACTOR often

represented a high-risk bank of last resort. Some labels knew they wouldn’t be making money from what were essentially developmental projects which would take several albums before substantial revenue would be realized. Though the companies put up half the finances for recording and marketing support, FACTOR support was more appealing than putting up the full 100% of financing.

program was effective in producing completed works which attracted significant public attention. In a speech at the Music Canada Conference in Toronto on March 17, 1990, then federal Communications Minister Marcel Masse acknowledged the increasing demand in the industry for funding, saying, “The number of c o m panies now qualifying for SRDP funding is growing at such a rate—over one hundred per cent growth—that the program is swamped by more applications than it can possibly fund.”

Nettwerk’s Arboit, recalling the impact of early FACTOR funding on Nettwerk says, “We were three guys with day jobs who pulled nothing out of the company. FACTOR gave us $12,500 to start the Grapes of Wrath’s ‘Treehouse’ album. That was like winning the lottery. Not only did we get that but we could get $25,000 to tour. Being young and resourceful, we made $25,000 go a long way.” Jim Cuddy recalls the benefits of FACTOR funding in building an international profile for Blue Rodeo. “We’ve been able to go to Australia, Europe, the U.K, and the United States, largely because of FACTOR. Those tours are large undertakings for a band our size. But you want to represent the kind of band you are when you tour. We opened for Edie Brickell in Europe in 1989. That put us at the Montreux Jazz Festival, and in front of a lot of international Warner affiliates.” By 1990, FACTOR had 12 sponsoring broadcasters and its budget for the fiscal year beginning April 1, 1990 was just over $3,000,000 covering funding for 7 programs. SRDP was being recognized as a most useful government strategy because the

(SRDP) was made permanent in 1991, the program, now known as the Canada Music Fund Council (CMFC), allocated $5 million annually to the development of the sound recording industry in Canada; 60% to the English-language industry, represented by FACTOR, and 40% to the French-language industry, represented by MusicAction. By this time, FACTOR had provided recording assistance to more than 1,100 artists in all styles and supported more than 50 tours and the production of some 200 music videos. The base of Canadian labels---almost doubled in 1984-85 to 1995-96 (+81%) according to the Apr. 2000 report “Evaluation of the Sound Recording Development Program--Final Report.” The core of major companies under Canadian control with a revenue of $1 million represented 15%. It grew significantly from 9 companies in 1984-85 to 23 in 1995-96. At the same time, the growth of foreign markets made artist development in Canada more globally oriented. Labels increasingly began to look to develop artists who could leap international boundaries. Alannah Myles, Celine Dion, the Cowboy Junkies, the Tragically Hip, Jane Child, Rita MacNeil,

the Jeff Healey Band, Colin James, Kon Kan, Skinny Puppy, Mary Margaret O’Hara, and Jane Siberry made significant international gains in the early ‘90s. Still, some of Canada’s biggest domestic successes of the period, including the Northern Pikes, Tom Cochrane, Men Without Hats, Maestro Fresh-Wes, Gowan, Luba, Blue Rodeo, Barney Bentall & the Legendary Hearts and Sass Jordan experienced practically no international profile. But this began to change. In 1992 Sarah McLachlan, Crash Test Dummies, the Holly Cole Trio, Loreena McKennitt, the Grapes of Wrath, and 54:40 broke through internationally while enjoying success in Canada. By the early ‘90s, FACTOR support became even more relevant as a vibrant, grass-roots alternative scene developed with a high number of alternative-styled bands enjoying sizeable success releasing their own independent recordings, leading to intense A&R scrutiny from multinationals. Initially leading the way were Barenaked Ladies, Sloan, Moxy Furious, the Waltons, Doughboys, I Mother Earth, Ashley MacIsaac, King Cobb Steelie, Lowest of the Low, Change Of Heart, and Eric’s Trip. While support from MuchMusic and alternative and college radio was vital in boosting the careers of these acts, it was also the enthusiastic support of such major retail chains as Sam the Record Man, and HMV Canada. At HMV’s Yonge Street flagship store, for example, the independent section ran from 600-1,000 titles, and was front racked near the high-traffic ground floor entrance. HMV promoted independent product by utilizing a chart, in-store displays, and in-store listening posts. Noticing that Canada's independent sector had become a potent A&R source, multi-

nationals in Canada began to eagerly seek out such talent via tie-ins with independent labels and artists via pressing and distribution agreements, co-ventures, or licensing deals. Meanwhile, Canadian country music was attaining more credibility. A star system had been established by the likes of Ian Tyson, George Fox, Michelle Wright, Prairie Oyster, Gary Fjellgaard, Patricia Conroy, the Good Brothers, Lisa Brokop, and the Johner Brothers. Canada’s urban acts, including D r e a m Warriors, Michie Mee & LA Luv, Kon K a n , Maestro FreshWes, and M a i n Source, were spreading the word internationally that Canadians could make great dance music. 1995 provided one of Canada’s most productive years, as McLachlan, McKennit, Siberry, and Crash Test Dummies set the pace internationally. At home, the most popular Canadian independent artist was Toronto-based singer/songwriter Hayden. His album “Everything I Long For” topped indie charts in the country for months. Other leading independents releases were registered by Pluto, Treble Charger, Glueleg, Len, Eric’s Trip and Monoxides. The following year, releases by Celine Dion, Alanis Morissette and Shania Twain dominated the global music marketplace. Canada finally was being widely recognized as a leading repertoire source. Wanagas noticed significant differences to Canada’s music industry when he returned in 1999, after 8 years in the United States. “I became aware very quickly how things had changed,” he says. “When I left Canada in 1991, it was very difficult to have a full time job in the music business in this country unless you were employed by a As well,

major record company, a major publisher, SOCAN or CIRPA. “When I came back, I could see you could make a living in the music business in Canada. That there was an infrastructure. I could see it the minute I got here. A lot of the change had to do with FACTOR.”

In its efforts to ensure that there was a national presence having a voice in who received funding, FACTOR started working with the provincial music industry associations (where they existed). The associations represented FACTOR to their local industry and helped with the dissemination of information about the various programs. As well, they shared the responsibility with FACTOR of conducting juries. The associations assigned a staff member to act as a Regional Evaluation Co-Ordinator (REC). In 1991, it started out with the associations doing it on a volunteer basis. As the relationship developed and the associations became comfortable with representing FACTOR and holding juries, more and more time was dedicated to program development and in 1995 the National Advisory Board was created. At the bi-annual meetings the associations bring forward any feedback (both negative and positive) they had received. This ensures that FACTOR continues to remain responsive to the needs of the industry coast to coast to coast. “I am very proud of our National Advisory Board and the relationships FACTOR has developed with the provincial and territorial music industry associations throughout Canada. One could say they are a cornerstone in the success FACTOR supported projects have had” states Ostertag.

In 2001, the Canadian government renewed its commitment to the recording industry by developing the Canadian Sound Recording Policy under the Canada Music Fund (CMF), which includes t h o s e s u p port programs FACTOR administers.

However, CMF was rolled into a new threeyear overall cultural program, Tomorrow Starts Today. This led to CMF—including t h o s e p r o grams administered by FACTOR—being switched to "temporary" status, and being subject to annual federal cabinet approval. This "temporary" status, and perceived threat to FACTOR’s future, spurred an independent committee of 20 Canadian music industry figures to launch the “Save Canadian Music” campaign in 2003. There have since been concerns that FACTOR was being sidelined to a lessened industry role by the Music Entrepreneur Component (MEC) program launched by Canadian Heritage in Sept. 2005. Initial funding for the program began to flow April 1, 2006. MEC—with an annual $10 million budget funds 19 established Canadian-owned labels. Nine of these— including Justin Time, Aquarius, Analekta, Tox, all in Montreal; Marquis, and True North in Toronto, and Nettwerk in Vancouver--previously drew funding from various FACTOR programs. “The launch of MEC shows a measured result of what we did for over two decades,” points out Ostertag proudly. “We grew companies. We still have plenty of labels at FACTOR, and will continue to have success stories.” However, due in part to evolving new communication technologies, there has been a dramatic shift in the recording industry in recent years. Downloading of music via the Internet and widespread CD-R copying, coupled with competition from such leisure products as DVD video, and computer games, has adversely affected recorded music sales worldwide. FACTOR realized that the Canadian-owned label and artist sector needed additional supplemental support to enhance their competitiveness within the growing digital economy, and to help it meet the challenges of the domestic marketplace, as well as to export their catalogs abroad.

As a result, FACTOR undertook an evaluation of its programs and relationships and roles with its sponsors in 2005. The evaluation was conducted on behalf of FACTOR by Ascentia and there was input from 878 people drawn from music and broadcast industries. “We had been struggling with overhauling programs because we were only getting one year contracts from Heritage,” explains Ostertag. “Do you reinvent FACTOR if it may be closed down? Once we had the five year commitment, we started the review

are increasingly seeking a great international presence. ”FACTOR helps us compete globally,” says Peter Cardinali, owner of jazz-styled Alma Records in Toronto. “We’ve been able to offer support to make international product that competes internationally. It lets us develop product and artists. Anybody I’ve ever spoken to in any territory elsewhere are very envious that we have something like this.” Many predict a grim picture for Canada’s independent sector if FACTOR closed down. “I can’t imagine the Canadian music industry surviving without FACTOR,” says Rosen. “FACTOR is as important, if not more important than it’s ever been,” says Wanagas. Ostertag agrees, “There’s always going to be a place for FACTOR because there is always going to be emerging talent. We’re developing the farm team and preparing them for bigger and better things.”

process. Then we refocused the organization, and streamlined our programs.” “At most times, FACTOR has been very responsive to the industry’s needs, and have listened very carefully,” points out Bernie Finkelstein, president of True North Records in Toronto. “Touring, marketing and promotion funding became more important,” says Montrealbased FACTOR Chair, Jim West, also president of Distribution Fusion III, and Justin Time Records. “It used to cost $200 an hour to record, now it’s a lot less. And at the same time marketing and promotion costs skyrocketed.” The reorganization was timely. The music industry worldwide began 2007 as a punching bag, in the throes of a slump that appears terminal to many of the people who work in it. Lay-offs have been commonplace throughout the industry--in Canada and elsewhere--as music sales have fallen. Yet, Canadian independent labels and artists with FACTOR support are finding a more receptive global audience for their catalogs while building a strong brand identity within Canada. As well, confident about their international networking skills, they
