Think There Is No Such Thing as 'Free'? Well......
Perhaps you're right, but being an ERAC member does come with some perks! It's true that with most ERAC offers, you have to pay to participate. You just pay a lot less than you would without the ERAC agreements in place! But members also have access to Added Values @ No Extra Cost! These are provincial agreements put in place exclusively for ERAC members and the only cost to participate is - belonging to ERAC! Once you pay your annual ERAC membership fee, you automatically benefit from:
The ERAC/ SOCAN Licensing Agreement
Under the ERAC/SOCAN agreement schools will not be required to purchase annual "public performance of music" licences or acquire single-event licences for most individual events that are not covered under the Copyright Act "educational purposes" exemption. For more details on school specific questions and answers under this license agreement and a checklist that identifies many common performances of music that occur in BC schools click here.

The Newest Version of "All The Right Type 3 Plus"
Under this agreement with Ingenuity Works, ERAC member districts can access ATRT 3 Plus for use in schools at no cost!
