APPENDIX E

ACTRA’s Policy Statement respecting engagement

of ACTRA Performers on Off-Shore Productions

ACTRA members may be approached by producers to work on productions shooting in part or entirely

outside of Canada. ACTRA members are advised to check with your local ACTRA office before

accepting engagements on such productions to ensure that the producers are signatory to the ACTRA

AGREEMENTS and are offering ACTRA members contracts, terms and conditions in accordance with

the ACTRA Agreement (ACTRA AGREEMENTS).

Here’s a general rundown of your responsibilities as an ACTRA member in each of four likely

scenarios:

1. The producer is signatory to the ACTRA AGREEMENTS and the production is mainly

shooting in Canada with an off-shore location shoot component.

The ACTRA member must be offered and sign an ACTRA contract covering the entire engagement.

2. The producer is signatory to the ACTRA AGREEMENTS, and has a production that is

shooting entirely in an off-shore location(s).

As a signatory to the ACTRA AGREEMENTS, the producer is obligated to engage ACTRA members

under the terms and conditions of the ACTRA AGREEMENTS for the entire engagement off-shore.

3. The producer is not signatory to the ACTRA AGREEMENTS and has a production shooting in

Canada with an offshore location shoot component.

The producer must become signatory to the ACTRA AGREEMENTS, and the ACTRA member must be

offered and sign an ACTRA contract covering the entire engagement.

4. The producer is not signatory to the ACTRA AGREEMENTS and has a production that is

shooting entirely in an off-shore location(s).

ACTRA members must be engaged on an ACTRA contract except in cases where there is a sister

union affiliated with the International Federation of Actors (FIA). In those cases, ACTRA members must

be engaged on an ACTRA contract or a contract of the FIA-affiliated union where the engagement is

taking place provided that such contract provides fees, terms and conditions at least equal to, or better

than, ACTRA’s AGREEMENTS.

Where there is no union in the location, ACTRA members must work on ACTRA contracts for an

ACTRA signatory producer pursuant to Article 404 of the ACTRA Constitution and By-Law #7 of the

ACTRA By-Laws.
