OCSM (the Organization of Canadian Symphony Musicians) is the voice of Canadian professional orchestral musicians.  OCSM's mission is to uphold and improve the working conditions of professional Canadian orchestral musicians, to promote communication between its members, and to advocate on behalf of the Canadian cultural community.

OCSM is a conference of the American Federation of Musicians of the United States and Canada (AFM) representing approximately 1100 musicians working under collective agreements in twenty Canadian orchestras. Together with other players' conferences (ICSOMROPARMA, and TMA), we work with the AFM to improve conditions across the continent.

L’ OMOSC (Organisation des musiciens d'orchestre symphonique du Canada) est la voix des musiciens d'orchestre professionnels canadiens.  La mission de l'OMOSC consiste à maintenir et à améliorer les conditions de travail des musiciens d'orchestre professionnels du Canada, à favoriser la communication entre ses membres et à promouvoir les intérêts de la communauté culturelle canadienne.

L'OMOSC est une association reliée à la Fédération américaine des musiciens des Etats-Unis et du Canada (FAM) qui représente les musiciens symphoniques professionnels du Canada. L'OMOSC compte vingt orchestres membres et regroupe environ 1100 musiciens liés par une convention collective. De concert avec d'autres conférences de musiciens (ICSOMROPARMA, et TMA ), nous unissons nos efforts à ceux de la FAM dans le but d'améliorer les conditions des musiciens partout sur le continent.
