CANO was a progressive rock band in the 1970s and 1980s. They were the most popular and internationally successful musical group in Franco-Ontarian history. CANO evolved out of the Coopérative des artistes du Nouvel-Ontario (Artists’ Cooperative of Northern Ontario), an artists’ collective established in Sudbury, Ontario in 1970. While based primarily in Sudbury, the band also had collective ownership of a farm in Sturgeon Falls, where they did much of their recording.
