We Need a Home and Your Support:

The Personal financial investment that has been made in The Northern Ontario Country Music Association and its projects over the last 25 years should indicate to anyone that this organization will be around for many years to come, but we need your support!  Northern Ontario has a wealth of country music talent that has yet to be recognized. Recognition of these musicians is the primary goal of the NOCMA.  You can show your support quite simply by attending local events across Northern Ontario.  If you are a lover of Country Music you’ll love the NOCMA shows and awards ceremonies, there is no doubt about it! 

As of April 2012, the Northern Ontario Country Music Hall of Fame displays were in storage.  In 2015 we purchased a cargo trailer to make the NOCMA displays mobile.  This trailer allows us to set up the displays at events.  We are still looking for a more permanent home for these displays.

The NOCMA has ongoing shows through the year in various locations in Northern Ontario.  A schedule of upcoming events can be found on this page to the right or in our News section.  Interested persons can also sign up on this website to become “members” of the Association.  There is no cost and you do not need to be a musician to join.  Members will receive occasional newsletters and notices from the Association by e-mail.

Feel Free to contact any of our district reps listed above if you would like to get involved.

TO GROW AND CREATE A POSITIVE FUTURE, WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT.  Whether you are a musician or not, Sign up to be a member now, it's free.  Please use our contact form if you wish to become more involved.
