About the Music Royalty and Administrative Fee (MRF)


What is the MRF?

The MRF is charged to cover our existing and anticipated content and licensing costs, where applicable, for the particular service subscribed for, and administrative costs which include ongoing technology development and infrastructure costs associated with providing our services in Canada.


How is the MRF calculated?

A. For Select, Mostly Music and All Access plans, the MRF is calculated on the subscription fee at a rate of 14.2%.

B. For SiriusXM Streaming, the MRF is calculated on the subscription fee at a rate of 10.2%.


Do all SiriusXM Canada subscribers pay the MRF?

For residents of all provinces in Canada other than Quebec, the MRF applies to all subscriptions, primary and secondary. The MRF is not applicable to subscriptions of residents of Quebec as it is already included in the all-in pricing in Quebec.


How is the MRF billed?

The MRF is billed with your subscription. So for a monthly subscription it will be added each month and for an annual subscription the yearly MRF total will be added each year. The MRF is not applicable to subscriptions of residents of Quebec as it is already included in the all-in pricing in Quebec.
