Toronto is the largest centre for music in Canada – the artists who create music are a vital part of Toronto’s culture. Music is also an important economic driver for the city. Toronto’s music scene attracts visitors and artists alike, engaging with film, television, fashion, food, and interactive media. Home to major and independent record labels, music festivals, event promoters, hundreds of recording studios and live music venues, and a wealth of talented performers across multiple genres, the city’s cultural diversity and talent pool drives Toronto’s success in the music industry.
The City of Toronto’s Music Office (a unit of Film & Entertainment Industries, Economic Development and Culture) exists to nurture the city’s music community through policy, recommendations, and advocacy.
