The primary purpose of JPEC is to inspire and grow audiences for jazz music through performances, education and recordings.

JPEC plans include a sophisticated first class venue and education centre for local and International musicians to showcase their talent. The facility will expand Toronto’s reputation as one of the most vibrant cities in North America to experience live jazz and thereby create an environment that nurtures local talent and develops a new and diverse audience.
JPEC will also provide a permanent home for a Hall of Fame and Archive of Canadian and International jazz history
