Representation by CMRRA is open to any person, firm or corporation which owns or administers one or more musical works in the territory of Canada. For greater clarity, if you are a songwriter who has not assigned your songs (often referred to as copyrights, catalogue, or “publishing”) to a publisher, administrator, or third party, you are the de facto publisher and can affiliate with CMRRA under your own name, or under a registered company name, as applicable.
In order to register, you should obtain an Affiliation Agreement Kit, which is available by following the link below.
