The Musicians Rights Organization Canada (MROC) have proposed a plan to wind down the organization by the end of 2024, with voting from their members set to take place on May 7th. This presents MROC members with a pivotal decision regarding their future in royalty collection and distribution.

Although the dissolution of MROC would be a loss for the performer community, ACTRA RACS stands ready to support the needs of MROC members should they look to join another CMO. ACTRA RACS represents tens of thousands of other performers who trust our team to safeguard their performer rights.

As industry-wide changes impact the bottom line of performers, ACTRA RACS is uniquely positioned to address these changes effectively. Our sole focus on performers means we deeply understand and advocate for performer rights. Our expertise in both domestic and international royalty collection ensures that performers receive direct and fair compensation. And as a not-for-profit, service-oriented organization affiliated with ACTRA, we have a legacy of over 80 years of advocacy for recording artists.

Today, ACTRA RACS advocates for new performer revenue streams, challenges inadequate structures in Canada that leave performers lagging the international standard and ensures that all performers are receiving every penny in fair compensation.

Our collective voice will continue to fight even harder for performer rights across Canada. With ACTRA RACS, performers have a partner that is strong, stable, and ready to support them.

Please reach out to the ACTRA RACS team with any questions on the recent MROC announcement.
