The SOCAN Awards is an annual event, held in both Toronto and Montreal, that celebrates songwriting, composing and music publishing achievements by our English and French members alike.
Since 1990 – the inaugural year of the SOCAN Awards – the Canadian music industry has gathered to pay tribute to the top-performed songs from the previous year by SOCAN members; honour exceptional film and television music; recognize iconic songs that have reached the 100,000 airplay mark (25,000 for French songs) on domestic radio; and present individual SOCAN members with special achievement awards for their impressive career accomplishments.
Over the years, more than 4,000 awards have been presented in various categories to songwriters, composers and music publishers whose music has garnered a great deal of success in Canada and abroad.
