From FACTOR (who will administer Phase 2 support to the live music industry): 

On July 7, 2020, the Department of Canadian Heritage announced the final components of Phase 2 of the COVID-19 Emergency Support Fund for Cultural, Heritage and Sport Organizations. The Fund is intended to complement the Government of Canada’s existing COVID-19 emergency measures by providing additional temporary relief to cultural, heritage and sport organizations facing significant financial losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Phase 2 includes temporary support for Canada’s live music industry as well as recording studios and other companies and organizations that did not receive funding under Phase 1. The funds will be delivered through the Canada Music Fund (CMF). FACTOR and Musicaction will administer these resources to the Anglophone and Francophone music communities respectively.

FACTOR will be launching Phase 2 support in two steps. This announcement relates to funding for venues, booking agents, artist managers and for-profit festivals. The deadline to submit an application for funding under Phase 2 for the live music industry is Wednesday, July 29, 2020 at 11:59pm Pacific Time.
