Deane Cameron's Family Selects MusiCounts For Donations In His Memory
The beloved Canadian music industry leader can be remembered by donations to the music education charity that was close to his heart.

In memory of Deane Cameron, those who would like to honour the music man who mentored so many in the Canadian music industry and signed such artists as Anne Murray, Nickelback, Tom Cochrane, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Stompin’ Tom Connors, Serena Ryder, and The Tea Party, can donate to MusiCounts , “which the family holds close to heart,” it reads on his memorial page.
Cameron was a founder, contributor, and donor to MusiCounts and served on the advisory committee for over 20 years
The president and CEO of The Corporation of Massey Hall and Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto since 2015 — who spent the majority of his career at EMI Music Canada where he was president for 24 years — was at his cottage at Eagle Lake in northern Ontario when he suffered a heart attack May 16 while walking in the woods. He was 65.
“Some charities have a web site that you can visit by clicking on the charity logo or name. After making a donation, you can return to this page to notify the Family and Friends by clicking ‘Submit Donation Notification’ and filling out the form,” it reads on Turner & Porter.
