Mroc

The Musicians' Rights Organization Canada (MROC) is a non-profit collective that collects and distributes royalties for performers. These royalties are payable under copyright legislation and reflect the rights of performers to be paid fairly for the broadcast and public performance of the recording(s) on which they performed. In Canada, these royalties cover a variety of broadcasts, including commercial radio, CBC radio, satellite radio and background music.

Until 1997, only songwriters received royalties when their songs were broadcast. Organizations like SOCAN are responsible for distributing these royalties to songwriters. Now, because of legislation that recognizes the contribution of performers in the creation of sound recordings, royalties are also payable to performers. MROC is responsible for distributing these royalties.

How it works - if you are a musician or vocalist who has performed as a featured or background performer on a sound recording, MROC may have royalties for you, if it has received radio airplay since 1998.

We at MROC are also committed to providing you with information and key links to music related organizations and events that will assist in the development of your career.
