What is ARTISTI ?

A collective society that enables you to collect your performance royalties

ARTISTI is a Canadian licensing body established in 1997 to protect, promote and preserve the rights granted to performers by the Copyright Act.

In this capacity, ARTISTI collectively manages the right to equitable remuneration and the right to remuneration ensuing from the private copying regime.

Moreover, since 2008, ARTISTI has been providing its members with the option to have it manage their exclusive reproduction rights for certain reproductions of their performances and, since 2015, to have it manage their complete set of exclusive rights.

ARTISTI’s Board of Directors is made up of eleven performers, including backup singers and musicians.

28.8 $M in Canadian royalties distributed to ARTISTI members
12.8 $M in international royalties distributed to ARTISTI members
1.8 $M in Canadian royalties distributed to members of international sister soiceties
24 $K in foreign royalties that ARTISTI was mandated to redistribute to other companies

A word from the Chairperson

The position of President of ARTISTI’s board of directors is presently vacant.
Florence K

If I had one wish to make, it would be that all the collecting societies around the world stand together and put pressure to ensure that the future of performers is no longer threatened.

Florence K President from 2016 to 2018
Richard Petit

I consider that the sums paid by the management societies are the last free entrenchments where artists can receive a direct payment which is not subject to any levy, and, in my opinion, these sums should go back entirely to them.

Richard Petit President from 2014 to 2016
Marie-Denise Pelletier

Like other societies in Europe, Artisti believes that a transitional solution involving ISPs and allowing right holders in the music industry to receive partial compensation should be seriously considered.

Marie-Denise Pelletier President from 1998 to 2014
