SOCAN and Re:Sound Fee Increase

Re:Sound and SOCAN are separate organizations that represent different stakeholders in the music recording industry.

  • Re:Sound is the Canadian not-for-profit music licensing company dedicated to obtaining fair compensation for artists and record companies for their performance rights.
  • SOCAN (the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada) is a not-for-profit organization that represents the Canadian performing rights of millions of Canadian and international music creators and publishers.

The SOCAN and Re:Sound fees for regular sessions collected by Skate Canada and remitted to these organizations are increasing for the 2018/2019 year.  SOCAN will be $74.72 plus tax and Re:Sound will be $49.05 plus tax.  Club/skating school fees are listed in the Membership Site at point of registration.
