ACTRA members ratify new production agreement
Canadian actors belonging to the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists (ACTRA) voted 96% to ratify a new independent production agreement (IPA) with the Canadian Film and Television Production Association (CFTPA) and the Association of Producteurs de Film et de Télévision de Québec (APFTQ). The IPA covers all terms and conditions of employment on independent film and television productions in Canada. The agreement includes increases in minimum fees of 1%, 1.5% and 2% in the three years of the deal. It also includes an almost 9% increase in the ACTRA extra hourly rate over the term of the deal as well as a 32% increase in the cap on the producer’s maximum retirement contributions. The current IPA expires in December.
