What is an application for certification?
In section 28 of the Status of the Artist Act, the term "certification" is used to mean the recognition granted to an artists' association by the Board. Obtaining such certification gives an artists' association the exclusive right to represent self-employed artists in a specific sector with respect to collective bargaining and their relations with producers within federal jurisdiction (broadcasting undertakings and federal government institutions).
Broadly speaking, a "sector" is composed of independent artists that the applicant is seeking to represent in bargaining with producers in federal jurisdiction who engage their services.
You may also consult the certification register which provides a description of the sectors that are represented by an artists' association certified under the Status of the Artist Act.
