Since its inception in 2014, Women in Music Canada has seen exponential growth in its membership and offerings, helping to foster gender equality in the music industry through the support and advancement of professionals and creatives at every stage of their career. Today, we are thrilled to announce the new expanded membership program, designed to provide greater engagement and a robust benefit package, created to better meet the needs of women and gender expansive folks in artistic and industry careers in Canada. You can now sign up or update your membership here.
The new membership level offers exclusive access to discounts for WIMC and industry partner programs, as well as a mentorship platform (launching in the coming weeks), invitation to exclusive networking events, access to a group healthcare plan, and more. Thanks to support from WIMC’s generous membership partners, including Paquin Entertainment Group and Sony Music Canada, fees are offered at a subsidized rate, as well as company packages and student pricing, aiming to provide increased accessibility to all registrants. We also look forward to announcing more benefits and additional Membership Partners soon.
Women in MusicCanada has seen incredible growth in recent years, thanks to your engagement. This is the first time that we have a full value prospect of what being a member brings to you. And we are working hard to keep these opportunities current and valuable for you.
Robyn Stewart says “In March 2022 we launched the WIM Canada Directory, as a new way to engage and connect our community, and to date, the Directory has 1200+ members. This new platform will also improve the way the directory can be searched and used. We are excited to now release this new membership platform, which will allow us to provide more value for members and have a better understanding of what our community wants.”
“My sincere thank you to our first two membership partners, Paquin Entertainment and Sony MusicCanada, who make it possible for us to keep membership fees as low as possible as they commit to supporting equity in the Canadian music industry.”
“I think it is essential to have a strong female presence in all aspects of the music industry; on stage, behind the scenes, on boards and at executive levels. We are thrilled to partner with Women in Music Canada to continue to change the dichotomy of the music industry by adding dynamic thinkers and leaders who have incredible stories to share,” says Julien Paquin, Co-President, Paquin Artists Agency
“Finally, we want to make sure access is available for all. So, the current complimentary membership level will continue to provide access to the WIMC directory and newsletter mailing list, to keep members and allies connected and informed on WIMC’s offerings and programs. If you would like to upgrade but the cost is not possible, please reach out and we would love to help you out.”
