Carnivals and Ice Shows

Re:Sound and SOCAN Information (Entandem) 

Entandem is a joint venture between Re:Sound and SOCAN, created to simplify the music licensing process.

Re:Sound and SOCAN are separate organizations that represent different stakeholders in the music recording industry.

  • Re:Sound is the Canadian not-for-profit music licensing company dedicated to obtaining fair compensation for artists and record companies for their performance rights.
  • SOCAN (the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada) is a not-for-profit organization that represents the Canadian performing rights of millions of Canadian and international music creators and publishers.

Skate Canada has negotiated reduced rates for all Skate Canada Clubs and Skating Schools for music use during regular sessions.  Clubs and schools are invoiced directly by Skate Canada through annual registration, which Skate Canada remits to each of these organizations.  Club and skating school fees are listed in the Membership Site at point of registration.

Additionally, clubs and skating schools must remit fees directly to Entandem through their website at for any additional events, such as ice shows and/or competitions.  All inquiries should be forwarded to Entandem directly at or by phone at 1.866.944.6223.
