A. Our Service:
1. Changes to Programming: The Service consists of a variety of music, sports, news, and entertainment programming. We reserve the right to change, rearrange, add, or delete programming, including canceling, moving or adding particular channels, at any time, with or without notice to you. If you are dissatisfied with the modified programming, you may terminate your service with notice to SiriusXM Canada as outlined in Section H. Your continued use of the Service following any programming changes will constitute your acceptance of such changes. Not all content offered on the Satellite Radio Service is available using the Online Service, and some content may have been modified for broadcast on the Online Service.
2. Use Limitations: We provide the Service only for your personal, non-commercial enjoyment. You may not make commercial use of, reproduce, rebroadcast, or otherwise transmit the programming, create unauthorized recordings of the programming, charge admission specifically for the purpose of listening to the programming, or distribute play lists of the Services. If your intended use is for commercial purposes you must subscribe to a Music For Business plan in accordance with Subsection A(8) below and pay our commercial rate. If you use any Service for commercial purposes, we reserve the right to charge you our commercial rate retroactively to the beginning of your Subscription. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section K, we or any of our programming partners may prosecute violations of the foregoing against you and other responsible parties in any court of competent jurisdiction, under the rules and regulations of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (“CRTC”), and other applicable laws. Subscription to the Services does not grant you the right to use any of our or our partners’ trademarks. You may not attempt to override or circumvent any of the usage rules, limitations, or security measures embedded into the Online Service. Only one concurrent login is permitted at any one time. You may login to the Online Service from any compatible Web Device, as defined in Subsection F(1), but not from more than one Web Device at any one time. SiriusXM Canada will hold you fully liable for all claims and losses resulting from your use or misuse of the Service and/or the Online Service.
3. Recorded Content: Certain types of our radios and Receivers have the ability to record programming transmitted over the Service (“Recorded Content”) and is not intended for commercial use. Subject to your radio’s restrictions and applicable laws, you may access such Recorded Content only as long as you pay your Subscription Fee as it becomes due. We reserve the right to change, reduce, eliminate or charge a fee for this and/or related functionality.
4. International Use Limitations: To be a Subscriber, you must possess a physical address in Canada. We reserve the right to verify any address you provide, and to terminate your Service and keep any payments you have made to us, in the event you have provided an incorrect address. The Online Service is intended to be enjoyed within the Service Area only.
5. User Safety: It is your responsibility to exercise prudent discretion and observe all safety measures required by law and your own common sense in using the Services. You assume the entire risk related to your use of the Services. SiriusXM Canada assumes no responsibility for accidents resulting from or associated with use of the Services. The Services and the information provided thereby are provided “as is” and SiriusXM Canada disclaims any and all representations, warranties and conditions, express and implied, with respect thereto or the transmission or reception thereof. In no event will SiriusXM Canada, its data suppliers, service providers, marketing/distribution, software or Internet partners or hardware manufacturers be liable to you or to any third party for any direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, special, exemplary or punitive damages or lost profits resulting from use of or interruptions in the transmission or reception of the Services. See also Section J, Limits on Responsibility.
6. Stock Ticker Usage (Only Applicable with Certain SiriusXM Canada Receivers): Certain stock quote data on the Satellite Radio Service is the intellectual property of the relevant provider or third parties that provide such data to the relevant provider. The data is protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws and all ownership rights remain with the relevant information service provider.
You may only use stock quotes retrieved from the Satellite Radio Service for your own personal and non- commercial purposes. You may not sell or otherwise make any stock quotes available to anyone else. You bear all risk from any use or results of using any stock quotes.
Transmission of stock quotes may be subject to arbitrary delays beyond our control. Neither SiriusXM Canada nor any stock quote provider warrants the accuracy, reliability, completeness or timeliness of the stock quote data. You acknowledge that the information service provider will not be liable to you or any third party for any losses arising from such delay. In no event will any information provider or SiriusXM Canada be liable to you for any loss or direct, indirect, incidental, consequential, special, exemplary or punitive damages or lost profits resulting from delay or loss of stock quotes on the Satellite Radio Service. See also Section J, Limits on Responsibility.
7. Channel Blocking and Monitoring: Some programming may include explicit language. Channels with a high frequency of explicit language are indicated on your channel line-up with an “XL”. It is your responsibility to impose listening restrictions that you consider appropriate on others. We are not responsible for content that you or anyone else may find inappropriate. Please contact our Customer Care Center at 1-888-539-7474 or visit our website www.siriusxm.ca for information on channel blocking. The Online Service is designed to appeal to a broad audience, and some programming may include explicit language. Channel blocking is not available with the Online Service; therefore, it is your responsibility to impose listening restrictions that you consider appropriate on others.
8. Commercial Subscriptions – Music For Business: In addition to the other terms of this Agreement, this subsection applies if you use the Satellite Radio Service or Online Service in a commercial establishment. Channels with a high frequency of explicit language are indicated on your channel line-up and on the channel display with an “XL”. These channels may not be appropriate for the patrons of a commercial establishment. If you use the Satellite Radio Service or Online Service in a commercial establishment, you must inform us promptly of any complaints you receive from any patron about the content of our Satellite Radio Service or Online Service. It is your responsibility to impose listening restrictions that you consider appropriate on others and for your patrons. Please contact our Customer Care Centers for information on channel blocking at email@example.com (for enquiries in English) or firstname.lastname@example.org (for enquiries in French). We reserve the right to block any channels from a commercial establishment based on listener complaints, CRTC inquiry, negative publicity, or similar factors.
Your commercial subscription authorizes you to play the Satellite Radio Service or Online Service live in public in your establishment for the purpose of providing Background Music as contemplated by SOCAN Tariff No. 16 (2010-2011) and Re:Sound Tariff 3.A – Background Music Suppliers (2010-2013), and their successor tariffs. You may not copy or record the broadcasts or the music provided by the Satellite Radio Service or Online Service. If you use the Satellite Radio Service other than to provide Background Music as contemplated by SOCAN Tariff No. 16 (2010-2011) and Re:Sound Tariff 3.A – Background Music Suppliers (2010-2013), and their successor tariffs, you, and not SiriusXM Canada, will be responsible for the payment of any tariffs or royalties associated with such use and you will be responsible for obtaining the clearances from rights holders or their representatives necessary for such use. Any change to the royalty rates currently payable by SiriusXM Canada to copyright collective societies, including the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada (“SOCAN”) and Re:Sound Music Licensing Company (“Re:Sound”) may result in a change to your commercial subscription fee. Our commercial subscription fees and other charges and fees are subject to change upon providing notice to you. If paying against invoices, mail all payments to the following address:

9. Online Service (SiriusXM Internet Radio Service): You may listen to our Online Service on one single internet enabled device at one time. If you have multiple Subscriptions to the Service, you may be eligible to receive an additional Online Service account (username/password) for each such Subscription. You have the obligation to protect your username and password from unauthorized use. To access the Online Service your account must be in good standing and you must be in compliance with these Terms. Certain devices designed to work with the Online Service may require a separate subscription. We may or may not offer the same content on all of our platforms of the Service. Our Online Service may be unavailable or interrupted from time to time for a variety of reasons, such as unavailability or difficulties with the Internet generally or your web browser, computer, home wiring, or Internet service provider and/or other reasons that we cannot control. Our Online Service functions best when streamed over a broadband connection. We do not guarantee continuous, uninterrupted or secure access to the Online Service and are not responsible for any service degradations and/or interruptions that occur.
You may not rebroadcast our Online Service in any way. You may play our Online Service through speakers or headphones for personal listening. You may not make any recordings of, or otherwise duplicate, the content provided by our Online Service. In addition, you may not re-transmit or otherwise distribute the content provided by our Online Service in any way, including online streaming such content or making such content available for download. You may not re-skin, re-package, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble our Online Service, or construct a media player or interface that accesses our Online Service. In addition, your use of any products or services that access our Online Service and which are provided by third parties not authorized by us to access our Online Service constitutes a violation of these Terms, even if you did not create such product or services and/or do not understand how they were created.
All content offered on the Satellite Radio Service may not be available on the Online Service and vice versa. Similarly, not all content offered on any of the Sirius or XM Services is available through the other modes of distribution (such as through the Internet, satellite TV, wireless, or other distribution affiliates we may engage from time to time).
The Online Service is intended to be enjoyed within the Service Area only. Your manipulation or “spoofing” of a Web Device as defined in Subsection F(1) or any other activities undertaken to deliver to our servers a false geographical location is a violation of this Agreement. If you disable the geographical location tools on your Web Device and no other method of determining your location is available to us then you will not have access to the geographically restricted channels on your Internet-enabled device regardless of your location.
10. Use of The Site: You assume all responsibility for use of our Site. You agree that any person using your identification issued for the Site will be treated and deemed by us as having been authorized by you to access your information as contained on the Site, and to have been authorized by you to take any other actions on your behalf. You will indemnify and hold harmless SiriusXM Canada and its affiliated companies from all damages, costs, expenses, liabilities and claims incurred by them arising out of any action taken by any person or entity using your username/password on the Site. You also waive all claims against SiriusXM Canada, its officers, directors, employees, suppliers and programmers that may arise from the utilization of the Site. At the end of each online session you should completely log out of the Service. Should your login ID or username/password be lost, stolen, sold, transferred or otherwise removed from your possession without your permission, contact us immediately so that your personal identifiers may be deactivated and reissued.
11. Interactive Services: We may provide an opportunity for users to exchange information, ideas and opinions on our Site. Information, ideas and opinions posted by users do not necessarily reflect the views of SiriusXM Canada. We do not assume responsibility or accept liability for any information, materials, ideas and opinions posted by users (“User Content”). We are not liable for any claims, damages or losses resulting from or relating to User Content. We reserve the right to remove any User Content posted on our Site in our sole discretion, without notice. If you post any User Content on our Site, you agree that it does not and will not:
- Harass, defame, intimidate or threaten another user;
- Interfere with another user’s rights to privacy;
- Distribute chain letters, surveys or contests;
- Post any material that is defamatory (i.e., disparaging to the reputation of an individual or business);
- Post any material that is obscene or indecent;
- Post any trademarks, logos or copyrighted material without the authorization of the owner;
- Post any materials that may damage the operation of a computer (such as a virus, worm or Trojan horse); or
- Advertise or sell any goods or services.
By posting User Content, or sending any other material to us (“Material”), you represent and warrant that the Material is original to you and that no other party has any rights to the Material and you grant us and our affiliates the royalty-free, unrestricted, worldwide, perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive and fully sub-licensable right and license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display such Material (in whole or part), including any information, suggestions, ideas, drawings or concepts contained in such Material, worldwide and/or to incorporate it in other works in any form, media, or technology now known or later developed. You are and will remain responsible for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality, decency, or any other aspect of such Material.
12. Changes to Packages and Plans: You have the right to change your subscription “Package” (e.g., ask us to change from “Music & Entertainment” to “Streaming Platinum”). You also have the right to change your subscription “Plan” (e.g., ask us to change from a Monthly Plan to a 3-Year Plan). How the change will affect your account and charges will depend upon the choices you make. Each Subscription to the Satellite Radio Service is tied to one Receiver. You may have multiple Receivers and multiple Subscriptions. Service fees and balances are typically account-related but sometimes Receiver-related. If you add additional Receivers to your account, you must purchase a separate Subscription for each one.
If you change an existing package or plan and keep the same Receiver, we will charge you the difference for the new Subscription. If the new fee is less than the fee for your current package or plan on the same Receiver, you may request a refund or leave the credit on your account. If the credit is left on your account, it will be automatically applied to the next charge. A Subscription you give up may be subject to early cancellation fees or nonrefundable prepayments, subject to applicable law. SERVICE CREDITS WILL BE HONORED IN THE FORM OF SERVICE FOR THE REMAINING LENGTH OF THE CREDIT. IF CUSTOMER CARE PUTS A SERVICE CREDIT ON YOUR ACCOUNT AS AN ACCOMMODATION, AND NOT DUE TO A CHANGE IN SERVICE, SUCH UNUSED SERVICE CREDITS WILL EXPIRE UPON TERMINATION OF YOUR SUBSCRIPTION AND MAY NOT BE TRANSFERRED TO ANOTHER PERSON. Lifetime, automotive pre-packaged, and certain promotional Subscriptions are nonrefundable; if you make changes to such Subscriptions, no Service credits will be due on your account.
B. Modification to Terms:
1. Amendment to Terms: Not applicable to Residents of Québec*: Due to the evolving nature of our business, its competition, and the requirement and costs of programming suppliers, we reserve the right to unilaterally change the terms on which we offer the Services from time to time, as we believe appropriate, including the rates, fees and charges. Any changes or modifications will be effective on at least thirty (30) days’ notice to you, and such changes shall become effective once you use the Service after such thirty (30) day period (which use shall be deemed to conclusively indicate acceptance of such changes).
If we make any such changes, we will post a notice on our Site that these Terms have changed and the effective date of such change and provide you with a description of such changes and a means for you to respond should you not accept such changes and therefore wish to terminate your subscription. We may also send you an entirely new set of terms to replace these Terms. YOU ALWAYS HAVE THE RIGHT TO CANCEL THE SERVICES AT ANY TIME IF CHANGES TO THESE TERMS ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE TO YOU. IF YOU ELECT NOT TO CANCEL YOUR SERVICES AFTER RECEIVING OUR NOTICE OF A CHANGE, YOUR CONTINUED RECEIPT OF SERVICES FROM US WILL CONSTITUTE ACCEPTANCE OF THE CHANGED TERMS. IF YOU NOTIFY US THAT YOU DO NOT ACCEPT SUCH TERMS, THEN WE WILL CANCEL YOUR SERVICES AS PROVIDED IN SECTION H. For greater certainty, in default of notifying SiriusXM Canada within the said deadline, you will be deemed to have accepted the amendment, and any subsequent cancellation will result in the obligation to pay the penalty or cancellation indemnity, if applicable.
Applicable only to Residents of Québec*: Due to the evolving nature of our business, its competition, and the requirement and costs of programming suppliers, SiriusXM Canada may from time to time amend each of the clauses of the Agreement, including subscription fees, other charges and fees and the nature of the Services. SiriusXM Canada will send you, at least thirty (30) days before the amendment comes into force, a written notice drawn up clearly and legibly, setting out the new clause only, or the amended clause and the clause as it read formerly, the date of the coming into force of the amendment and your cancellation rights. You may refuse this amendment and cancel the Agreement thus amended without cost, penalty, or cancellation indemnity, but after payment of the amounts owed for use of the Service up to the cancellation date, if the amendment entails an increase in your obligations or a reduction in SiriusXM Canada’s obligations, by sending SiriusXM Canada a notice to that effect, via its customer service (Subsection L(1)), no later than thirty (30) days after the amendment comes into force.
Subscription plans will, unless we receive notice from you to the contrary, continue automatically at the expiry of their billing period at then current rates, payable in advance. Except for subscription plans whose billing term is less than six (6) months, we will inform you of the expiry date of your billing period by means of a written notice sent between the 90th and 60th day before such expiry date. A notice will be sent to you in accordance with Subsection L(1) advising you of the pending continuation of your subscription and the effective date of the new billing period.
2. Special Offers: In the event we elect to make available special offers and promotions which supplement or modify the terms and conditions set forth in these Terms, the details of such special offers and promotions, including eligibility requirements for participation, will be made available separately. In the event of any conflict between the terms and conditions associated with a special offer or promotion and these Terms, the terms of the special offer or promotion in question shall govern. The Terms shall only be altered or amended by offers or promotions expressly authorized by SiriusXM Canada.
C. Satellite radio service interruptions:
Satellite Radio Service may be unavailable or interrupted from time to time for a variety of reasons, such as environmental or topographic conditions and other reasons we can’t control. Satellite Radio Service may not be available in certain places (e.g., in tunnels, parking garages, or within or next to buildings) or near other technologies. Home, portable and office-based Receivers function best when the antenna is placed in or near a south-facing window with a clear view of the sky. Even if your antenna is near a south-facing window, certain window treatments could interfere with reception. We are not responsible for any interruptions of Satellite Radio Service that occur beyond our control.
D. Online service interruptions:
Online Service availability may be limited or unavailable based on unavailability or difficulties with the Internet generally or your web browser, computer, home wiring, or Internet service provider and other reasons beyond our control. The Online Service functions only when streamed over a broadband connection. We do not guarantee continuous, uninterrupted or secure access to the Online Service and operation of the Online Service may be interfered with by numerous factors outside of our control.
E. Receivers and other equipment:
1. Authorized Suppliers: You may access and use the Service only with equipment authorized to receive the Service. However, we do not make or install any of the Receivers or related equipment, including antennas, adapters, adhesive devices, cables, etc. (“Equipment”) you may use to receive Service. You must purchase your Receiver and Equipment, and any repairs, parts, installation or service for it, from authorized sellers or manufacturers. We are not liable for any damage to your vehicle, home or other personal or real property resulting from installation or use of any Receiver or Equipment. We do not warrant any Receiver or Equipment in any way whatsoever and are not responsible for the advertising, statements, practices, promises, services or warranties of such sellers or manufacturers. If you have any complaints about your Receiver, Equipment or installation, you should direct them to your authorized seller, manufacturer or installer. Returns of Receivers or Equipment are subject to your authorized seller’s or manufacturer’s return policy.
2. Multiple Receivers: Each Subscription to the Satellite Radio Service is tied to one Receiver. If you add additional Receivers to your account, you must purchase a separate Subscription for each one (see Section G). Such additional subscriptions may be eligible for reduced rates, which may be offered by SiriusXM Canada from time to time and a per radio activation fee will apply. Note that any reduced rates are conditional upon your account having multiple subscriptions. We will notify you regarding any required adjustments to your billing cycles necessitated by multiple subscriptions on a single account.
3. Loss of Equipment: Because your Satellite Radio Service Subscription is tied to a particular Receiver, if your Receiver is lost, stolen, sold, transferred or otherwise removed from your possession without your permission, you must cancel or suspend your Subscription or you will remain responsible for the payment obligations for your Satellite Radio Service under the terms of your Subscription, regardless of your use of the Satellite Radio Service.

Attention: Customer Care Centre
135 Liberty St., 4th Floor
Customer Care Centre email address:
We will respond to you as promptly as we can. If you write to us, please include the following information:
- Your name and SiriusXM Canada account number;
- The dollar amount in question; and
- The details of your question.
Please do not include any payment with your correspondence. If you wish to dispute any charge, you must contact SiriusXM Canada within thirty (30) days after the date you receive the statement in question (see Section K “Resolving Disputes” for how to notify SiriusXM Canada that you are disputing a charge). Undisputed portions of the statement must be paid by the due date to avoid a late fee and possible deactivation of the Services.
5. Payments: You must pay in Canadian dollars using a credit card, prepaid card or any other form of payment accepted by SiriusXM Canada. The outstanding balance is due in full each payment period. We may, in our discretion, accept partial payments, which will be applied to the oldest outstanding statement. No “payment in full” notation or other restrictive endorsement written on your payments will restrict our ability to collect all amounts owing to us.
6. If You Don’t Pay on Time: We expect you to pay your account balance on time. If you don’t pay your account balance on time, we may deactivate your Services after any applicable grace period. If you purchased an annual or multi-year subscription to any Services and your account is past due, we may convert your subscription to a quarterly or monthly subscription. If so, we will prorate your subscription and amounts owed to us and will apply your pre-payments to past due amounts and any remaining credit to future obligations.
7. Consents Regarding Credit: In order to establish an account with us, you authorize us to inquire into your credit history by obtaining a credit/consumer report and other credit and personal information from credit/consumer reporting agencies and financial institutions, and to exchange with any credit/consumer reporting agency and financial institution credit and personal information relating to this Agreement and details of any credit granted (including, without limitation, payment history relating to the credit granted) for the purposes of SiriusXM Canada determining creditworthiness and for the purposes of permitting other credit grantors to do the same.
8. Change of Address or Credit or Charge Card Information: You must notify us immediately of any change in your name, mailing address, residence address, e-mail address, telephone number or credit or charge card information.
9. Taxes: You will pay all taxes or other government fees and charges, if any, which are assessed based on your use of the Services and the billing address you provide to SiriusXM Canada.
10. Lifetime Subscription Plan: A “Lifetime Subscription” is one that continues for the life of the Receiver equipment. A Lifetime Subscription associated with a home, portable, or dock and play Receiver is transferable from one Receiver to another Receiver, up to a maximum of three (3) times. Each permitted transfer of a Subscription is subject to the Hardware Transfer Fee. If you transfer a Lifetime Subscription from one Receiver to another or from one person to another, you will be charged a transfer fee. The current transfer fee is set forth in these Terms. A LIFETIME SUBSCRIPTION IS NOT TRANSFERABLE IF IT IS ASSOCIATED WITH A RECEIVER INSTALLED BY AN AUTOMAKER OR AN AUTOMOTIVE DEALER IN A VEHICLE, EXCEPT IN THE EVENT THE ORIGINAL RECEIVER ASSOCIATED WITH THAT AUTOMOTIVE PLAN IS STOLEN, ACCIDENTALLY DAMAGED OR IF, IN THE SOLE DISCRETION OF SIRIUSXM CANADA, THE RECEIVER IS DEFECTIVE. NO TRANSFER FEE WILL BE CHARGED FOR THE TRANSFER OF A LIFETIME SUBSCRIPTION PLAN ASSOCIATED WITH A RECEIVER INSTALLED BY AN AUTOMAKER OR AN AUTOMOTIVE DEALER, IF IN OUR SOLE DISCRETION, THE RECEIVER IS DEFECTIVE. LIFETIME SUBSCRIPTIONS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. YOU MAY CANCEL A LIFETIME SUBSCRIPTION BUT IF YOU CANCEL DURING THE FIRST YEAR OF SERVICE YOU MAY BE CHARGED A CANCELLATION FEE AS SET FORTH IN THESE TERMS.
11. Credentials: A copy of your credentials, which may include your payment card, account number or payment token, will be stored by SiriusXM Canada for future charges. Where possible, we subscribe to services whereby Card Issuers provide us with updated Card Information so that you do not need to update us with new credentials every time they are created. Please check with your Card issuer to determine if your card is eligible for this service.
1. Term: Not applicable to Residents of Québec*: The term of this Agreement is indefinite and Services will continue until cancelled. Annual or multi-year subscription plans will, unless we receive notice from you to the contrary, renew automatically at their expiry for a term of the same length as the initial pre-paid subscription at then current rates. A notice will be sent to you in accordance with Subsection L(1) advising you of the pending renewal of your subscription and the effective date of the renewal.
Only applicable to Residents of Québec*: The term of this Agreement is indefinite and shall remain in effect until one of the parties has cancelled it in accordance with this Agreement.
2. Your Cancellation: Not applicable to Residents of Québec*: You may cancel your Subscription at any time. In order to cancel your subscription you must call us at 1-888-539-7474 during our normal business hours.

For security purposes, we may require you to provide certain information to validate your identity prior to cancelling your Services.

We will refund amounts you have prepaid representing that time period beyond the date notice of termination is effective for which you have not used your Services and no Administrative Fees will be applicable (other than those already incurred).

Only applicable to Residents of Québec*: You may cancel this Agreement at any time and at your discretion by notifying us in accordance with Subsection L(1), via telephone during our normal business hours, or by notifying us at the address provided above under “Contacting SiriusXM Canada”.

IN THE UNLIKELY EVENT THAT WE CEASE BROADCASTING THE SERVICE, FOR ANY REASON, ALL PREPAID SUBSCRIPTIONS WILL BE TREATED AS NONREFUNDABLE.
3. Our Cancellation: We may cancel this Agreement at any time if you fail to pay amounts owing to us when due, subject to any applicable grace periods, for breach of any other material provision of this Agreement or for any other reason.
