The Canada Industrial Relations Board is holding a consultation session in Vancouver regarding proposed amendments to the Canadian Artists and Producers Professional Relations Tribunal Procedural Regulations (the Regulations).
The Board is in the process of reviewing the Regulations in order to ensure better alignment of the policies, procedures and practices under the Status of the Artist Act with the Board’s current practices, while taking into account the unique circumstances of the cultural sector. Those interested in attending are encouraged to review the Consultation Chart posted on the Board's Website.
The Board is seeking comments from the client community on the proposed amendments and invites artists, artists’ associations, producers and other stakeholders to provide their views. Consultation sessions were held in Toronto, Ottawa and Montréal in June 2013.
The CIRB has prepared a consultation chart with proposed amendments to the Regulations.
A consultation session will be held in Vancouver on Friday, September 6, 2013 at the CIRB offices located at:
501-300 West Georgia Street, Vancouver
The session will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. A continental breakfast will be served starting at 8:30 a.m.
