Dear ITA engager,

The 2018-2019 ITA Fee Booklet is now available for download online. All minimum fees and other monetary amounts increased by 2.75% as of Monday, June 25, 2018 and will remain in effect until June 23, 2019.

The Fee Booklet also includes the following new ITA appendices, all of which come into effect as of September 3, 2018:
APPENDIX XVI AUDITIONS (replaces Clauses 8:06, 53:01 & 58:03)
Includes enhancements regarding singing and dancing at auditions and a prohibition against requiring Performers to list their age or their weight on an audition submission. Amendments will ensure greater safety in auditions by requiring that they be held in appropriate places of work and that there is always more than one person present in an audition room. There can be no nudity requested at auditions.

APPENDIX XVII HARASSMENT AND DISCRIMINATION (replaces Article 9:00)
This new Article will now include the requirement for theatres to participate in Equity's Not In OUR Space! anti-harassment initiative.

APPENDIX XVIII CONTRACTS (replaces Clause 35:05(C))
Please note: Equity will be adding a new provision which provides for a small penalty payment for when engagement contracts arrive at Equity's office past the time frame specified in the current Agreement (Clause 35:05(C)). The delay in receiving contracts and riders results in confusion over billing and occupies time from both Equity's staff and that of the ITA Theatres.

APPENDIX XIX NON-STANDARD ACTIVITIES INCLUDING WORKSHOPS AND READINGS (replaces Article 57:00) 
ITA engagers have the opportunity to use new provisions for the engagement of members for non-standard engagements of a short duration.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at execdir@caea.com or Senior Business Representative Dustyn Wales at dustyn@caea.com.

Sincerely,
CANADIAN ACTORS' EQUITY ASSOCIATION
