ACTRA and the Association of Canadian Advertisers (ACA) agreed to a one-year (June 1, 2022, to May 31, 2023) renewal of the National Commercial Agreement (NCA), including the Local and Regional (L&R) Commercial Addendum, to provide stability for the industry. On June 1, the Association des agences de communication créative (A2C) joined ACA and ACTRA in the renewal of the NCA to ensure Quebec advertising agencies will continue to have access to ACTRA’s professional performers. The renewal agreement came into effect on June 1 and provides a two per cent increase to rates and fees.

The NCA establishes the terms and conditions for on- and off-camera performers engaged in English-language commercial production in Canada and ensures reasonable pay, benefits and retirement contributions.

ACTRA Members have been advised not to accept work from the Engagers that have unlawfully locked out ACTRA performers from the workplace. Click here for the list of Locking Out Engagers.
