British Columbia’s music professionals and artists have reason to celebrate, with the announcement of $7.5 million in government funding for Amplify BC, the province’s new music fund. 

Amplify BC will support people working in BC’s diverse music industry. The new fund focuses on four program areas: career development for BC artists, support for live music events in BC, support for BC's music companies, and the development of our provincial music industry. 

The new fund was created following consultation by Creative BC with BC’s music industry stakeholders. Amplify BC will be administered by Creative BC from April 2018 through end of March 2019.
