From a media release:
The Writers Guild of Canada (WGC) has reached a tentative agreement with the Canadian Media Production Association (CMPA) and the Association Québécoise de la Production Médiatique (AQPM) on a new Independent Production Agreement (IPA) for Canadian screenwriters.
Jill Golick, WGC president, says, “This proposed agreement makes forward-thinking changes that include expanding our jurisdiction and puts Canadian screenwriters in a better position in our evolving industry.”
After the deal has been presented to WGC members for ratification further details will be available. Once ratified by WGC members, the CMPA board and the general assembly of the AQPM, the new collective agreement will set the minimum terms of engagement until the end of 2017.
