The CCMIA acts as the national voice of the member MIAs in all matters concerning the music industry and provides national programs and services for its members across the country.
- Advocacy: We advocate in regard to pressing matters concerning the music industry including copyright law, regulatory matters, tax issues, and funding for music production and development.
- Research: We fund important studies on the state of the Canadian music industry, including the 2013 Sound Analysis report conducted by Nordicity on behalf of the Canadian Independent Music Association.
- Music-related projects: We administer projects such as the Canadian Songwriter Challenge (launching Spring 2015, ending 2021), which involves an annual series of MIA-coordinated songwriting retreats for artists across the country.
