The International Resource Centre for Performing Artists is a dedicated service organization for Musical Artists. It was incorporated in 1985 to support freelance performers in the music field to make the transition from student to professional and to assist them to reach their goals at various stages in their careers.

VISION of the International Resource Centre for Performing Artists (IRCPA)

The goal of the IRCPA is to be a hub that assists Canada’s musicians to achieve sustainable, fulfilling careers that meet or exceed their goals.


The IRCPA’s mission is to connect individual musicians with one another, with artistic coaches, other professionals, and current leaders in the industry for knowledge exchange, coaching, and employment opportunities. By 2020, to establish and operate a physical Centre which, in time, will be self-sustaining, where artists can rehearse, audition, develop business practices, gain confidence and find support in their careers.
