Welcome to the MIAC Home Page

Founded in 1972, The Music Industries Association of Canada (MIAC) is a national, not-for-profit trade association that represents retailers, manufacturers, and the distributors of music products. The association also represents those providing technologies and services to the event, entertainment, and communication industries across Canada, and the Globe.


MIAC is committed to supporting and advancing the music products industry in Canada through advocacy, research, education, trade shows, and membership services.


Many musicians are badly uninsured. Instrument insurance could compensate them if they were lost, stolen or damaged. Public liability insurance could protect themselves or the general public if they inadvertently harmed someone, or damaged property; an instable speaker or trailing lead could cause expensive injuries. General musician insurance will cover most risks but musicians should consider personal liability cover, or accident cover to protect themselves, and if they employ anyone employers liability insurance is a kegal nevessity.


A prosperous and professional industry that is recognized, valued, and utilized by the public, as a result of the economic and life-style benefits that their products and services provide.
