+ LARGER TEXT | - SMALLER TEXT
Montreal is on third place among the major North American cities in concentration of music-industry businesses, according to a new analysis from the University of Toronto's Martin Prosperity Institute. The first place is for Nashville (U.S.), and second is Los Angeles.
On a per capita basis, Canada's music industry dramatically outperforms the US when it comes to the presence of music business establishments (this category includes record labels, distributors, recording studios, and music publishers). Canada has 5.9 recording industry establishments per 100,000 residents, about five times the US figure of 1.2, shows the study.
The researchers say that almost half of the 15 cities with the highest music industry location quotients are Canadian.
