WGC Members re: CMPA

March 21, 2018

A note to WGC members regarding the CMPA: on March 19, 2018, the CMPA sent a memo to its members saying that productions for “over the top” (OTT) services such as Netfix may be contracted under Section “F” of the writers’ Independent Production Agreement (IPA). However, broadcast content, (for example, shows on Netflix), has consistently been contracted under Section “C” of the IPA, which includes a Production Fee.  
 
In the unlikely event that your producer mentions the CMPA position of March 19, 2018 to you, let the Writers Guild of Canada handle it.
