We have a deal!
After 8 days of intense negotiation, ACTRA, the Canadian Media Producers Association (CMPA) and L’Association québécoise de la production médiatique (AQPM) have reached agreement in principle on the terms for the renewal of the Independent Production Agreement (IPA). Read the joint press release. The deal must now be ratified by members of all organizations before becoming effective.
Watch your email inbox and this page for updates. Referendum materials are currently in preparation and it is expected that members eligible to vote in the IPA ratification referendum (see Voter Eligibility section below) will receive their voting packages and instructions in late November.
