Canadian actors have signed a new collective pact with the country’s producers.

It was announced Saturday that the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists (ACTRA) has reached a new Independent Production Agreement with the Canadian Media Production Assn. and Assn. of Quebec TV and Film Producers.

The actors will receive a rate increase of 6% over three years. The new agreement also includes protections against violence and harassment on set, enhanced equal opportuniy provision and increases for voice and stunt performers.

“The current IPA is one of the best agreements in the world,” said Stephen Waddell, ACTRA’s national executive director.

ACTRA members have to vote on the agreement by mail over the next month.
