Unison is a non-profit, registered music industry charity that provides counselling and emergency relief services to the Canadian music community. We are here to help professional music makers in times of hardship, illness, or economic difficulties.
For many, a career in music is a dream come true; however, the reality is that many members of the Canadian music community do not have access to the services that can make all the difference in a time of need: sick leave, medical benefits, pension plans, and unemployment insurance. Music-makers can easily find themselves unprepared to deal with the financial and emotional burdens of an unforeseen emergency or illness. Unison provides a lifeline in these times of crisis and is there to ensure the health of our friends, colleagues, and collaborators.
Unison is an assistance program – created and administered for the music community, by the music community – designed to provide discreet relief to music industry professionals in times of crisis in the form of two distinct types of support, Financial Assistance and Counselling & Health Solutions. That includes, but not limited to: mental health support, tackling addictions/substance use, medical/dental emergencies, living expenses: including rent, utilities, and groceries.
