APEM has 3 member categories:


Professional Members

A professional member of the Association is a member who holds rights, titles and interests in musical works.  All professional members have the right, if they have been registered in a management company for less than three years at the moment of their APEM registration, to benefit from two years at a “starting member rate”. For the two years during which starting members can take advantage of this rate, they have the same benefits as professional members.  The publishers whose repertoires consist solely of their own works can access the “composer rate”, and still keep the same benefits as professional members. There is also a “outside of Quebec” rate for members whose business is located elsewhere than the province of Quebec.


Associate Members

An associate member is a person who is interested in music publishing but doesn’t hold any rights, titles or interests in musical works as a music publisher.


Honorary Members

An honorary member is a person nominated by the executive board by reason of their contribution and dedication to the progress and recognition of the music publishing industry and its members.
