We rely on the generosity of music lovers like you to fund our programming. Thank you for your contribution and your support of Canadian singer-songwriters and talent.

Our Mandate

MADE is committed to reflecting the diversity of Canadian artists and music creators in its programming and advocacy. We are firm in our belief that education and engagement are of the utmost importance to artists and music creators in the advancement of their career and in support of that belief, we are committed to creating and operating events that are in alignment with that fundamental necessity. We will also, in all of our operations and programming, encourage the values of diversity, accessibility and inclusiveness.
