The NCRA greatly appreciates the support of the Ontario Trillium Foundation in funding the creation of the Ontario Independent Music Archive, known as OIMA.
The archive will be an online digital resource for current and older music by independent musicians from across the province, particularly for work that is on less accessible analogue formats, like cassette and vinyl. We are partnering with the Music Association of Canada on this work.
The Ontario Trillium Foundation is an agency of the Government of Ontario.
The students of Simon Fraser University voted in March 2009 to contribute 25 cents per student to the operating costs of the NCRA. The initiative was spearheaded by CJSF-FM, the community-based campus radio station at Simon Fraser and is administered by the Simon Fraser Student Society. Thanks to all.
In 2002 the students of the University of Winnipeg voted to each contribute 25 cents per student to the operating costs of the NCRA. The initiative was spearheaded by CKUW-FM, the community-based campus radio station at the University of Winnipeg and is administered by the University of Winnipeg Student Association. Thanks to all.
