Music PEI Investment Program

In 2008, Music PEI began to offer multiple investment opportunities to members of PEI's music industry. These programs were created with funding from the Provincial Government’s Department of Culture in an effort to assist the growing industry in key areas that would help to develop both the artists and the infrastructure in the province.

To date Music PEI has awarded over $800,000, investing in over 300 projects by members of the Island music industry. In the nine years since the inception of the Music PEI Funding Program there has been a substantial amount of notable growth and achievements within the industry. The number of internationally touring artists have increased by 400%, the number of recording studios has doubled and in a recent Economic Impact Study commissioned by Music PEI it was noted that the Island’s music industry accounts for 1,000 full time equivalent jobs.

Each of these programs is designed to assist artists and industry members at various stages of their careers, with the final goal of creating long term self-sustaining careers. Please read the guidelines carefully to see where you fit and qualify. The 4 categories include Emerging Artists, Export Ready and Exporting Artists, Career Artists, and Music Industry Professionals.

In addition, Music PEI recently launched the New Business Growth Program with funding support from ACOA and Innovation PEI. This is a 6 month program that has two deadlines in the summer and winter and is designed to assist artists with both best business practices and creating multiple revenue streams.

The next Music PEI Funding Program deadline is April 30, 2022, at 5:00 pm AT. Our Program Officer will be available by appointment to meet and educate members of Music PEI who wish to access the investment program. Please contact them at or 894-6734 to set up an appointment.
