Status of the Artist

Self-employed artists, artists’ associations, producers and producer’s associations operating in the federal jurisdiction have a separate labour relations system. 

The Board hears applications and complaints by artists, artists’ associations, producers or producers' associations on matters such as: 

  • the certification of artists’ associations;
  • revocations of certification orders;
  • the artists’ association’s duty to represent its members fairly;
  • unfair labour practices by artists’ associations, producers and producers’ associations;
  • pressure tactics.
