In a continuous effort to streamline our activities and better service our stakeholders, the Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture is partnering with Music NB to deliver the Music Industry Development Program (MID) on its behalf effective June 1st 2017.

Specifically:

  • New Brunswick joins its Atlantic counterparts in having its music industry association (MIA) administer its music industry development funding programs. This arrangement has served the sector well in the other provinces and we are confident that Music NB will be an excellent steward of this popular grant Program, on behalf of government.
  • Please be assured that the MID Program will not be changed in any way in terms of guidelines and budget.
  • Music NB will take on this work for the 2017-18 fiscal year and the new arrangement may continue for years to come providing both parties are pleased with the outcome.
  • GNB and Music NB commit to ensuring any changes to the Program, or its administration, will be jointly communicated to industry stakeholders.
