The Foun­da­tion Assist­ing Cana­di­an Tal­ent on Record­ings (FACTOR) is call­ing on con­tribut­ing mem­bers of the Cana­di­an Music Indus­try to par­tic­i­pate in online jury ses­sions. FACTOR receives thou­sands of appli­ca­tions for their Juried Sound Record­ing and Demo Pro­grams each year and it is through the pro­fes­sion­al expe­ri­ence and under­stand­ing of our jurors that FACTOR is able to deter­mine which appli­ca­tions are strongest and best suit­ed for fund­ing. Jurors play an imper­a­tive role in the devel­op­ment of Cana­di­an Artists by offer­ing their time and exper­tise to review­ing appli­ca­tions, pro­vid­ing a scored eval­u­a­tion and offer­ing valu­able feed­back for each of the appli­ca­tions avail­able in a jury. If you are inter­est­ed in becom­ing an accred­it­ed FACTOR juror, please go to and click on the “Become a juror” page under the “Get Involved” menu. You can also call Christi­na Cas­saro at 416–696-2215 ext. 223 or send an email to
