Section 6(2)a) of the Status of the Artist Act defines a "producer" as

  1. government institutions listed in Schedule I to the Access to Information Act or the schedule to the Privacy Act, or prescribed by regulation, and
  2. broadcasting undertakings, including a distribution or programming undertaking, under the jurisdiction of the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission.

Under the Act, producers may form an association of producers for the purpose of bargaining with certified artists' associations.
