About our Advocacy Campaigns

The Canadian League of Composers has adopted an advocacy strategy that communicates the value of the work of composers, classical music and the arts in Canada to key stakeholders in the music community and to the public, both nationally and regionally, through press releases on topical issues, media campaigns, and by advocating CLC commissioning rates for composers to funders of new music. The CLC is a member of the Canadian Arts Coalition (CAC) and is affiliated with the Creator’s Copyright Coalition(CCC) and the Creator’s Rights Alliance.
