About Radio Starmaker Fund
The Radio Starmaker Fund was created in the fall of 2000 on the initiative of the Canadian Association of Broadcasters in consultation with the Canadian music industry and the CRTC. It is funded entirely by Canada’s private radio broadcasters and managed by a Board of Directors comprised of leaders in broadcasting and the music industry. The fund supports emerging artists with star potential from every region of Canada. Festival Music House was created in 2010 by Starmaker to provide a platform for artists to share their talents with key decision makers in the film and television industry and to highlight the talents of Canadian musicians. It now runs in several festivals across the country.
