Industrial Relations

The CMPA-BC IR Team negotiates and administers the collective agreements that govern the engagement of actors, directors, writers, technicians and other production personnel in the British Columbia film, television, animation and digital media industry.

Our experienced team liaises with members and key industry stakeholders to maintain a stable, predictable and sustainable labour relations environment for film, television, animation and digital media production in BC.


Members and duly authorized representatives may contact the IR team for:

  • Interpretation of collective agreements
  • Advice on industry practice
  • Assistance in dispute resolution (and hopeful avoidance of costly arbitration)
  • Support and where appropriate, representation
