The Canadian Federation of Music Teachers’ Associations (CFMTA) is an umbrella organization encompassing provincial registered music teachers' associations in all 10 Canadian provinces. Its purpose was to lobby for school credits for grades achieved in private music study. In addition, its objectives have been to improve the standards of music education, to promote provincial music teachers' associations, and to foster public appreciation of music. The CFMTA was established in 1935 by the British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba associations, joined in 1942 by Ontario, in 1944 by Nova Scotia, in 1945 by Quebec, and in 1954 by New Brunswick. It was incorporated in 1961. The federation is governed by an executive council of elected provincial representatives. It serves approximately 90 branches in Canada and a membership of about 3,300. Conventions are held biennially and feature master classes, workshops, and concerts with world-class clinicians and musicians. The CFMTA provides further support to young talented performers through national competitions and scholarships.
