Our Mission

Toronto Music City’s mission is the development of healthy music ecosystems and sustainable creative communities centered on the health, careers and wellbeing of musicians.  We accomplish this mission through three mandates:

  1.  Building affordable housing and music hubs in the GTA
  2. Facilitating and leading music education and community programming through a S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Maths) lens; and,

  3. Delivering health and wellness services to musicians and our members, namely dental, mental health and paramedical services.

Our Method

We plan to deliver on these mandates by:

  1. Forming strategic public-private partnerships between industry and all orders of government.
  2. Partnering with a wide group of music and corporate partners in a non-partisan manner.
