The ACA acts on behalf of Canadian advertisers to negotiate with the Union des Artistes (UDA) commercial agreements for TV & radio as well as internet and new media. UDA covers all talent issues pertaining to all French-language commercials for the Canadian market, regardless of where they are produced.

Negotiations of the UDA TV & Radio Agreement are ongoing. In the interim, current terms and conditions of the 2012-2015 agreement remain in effect.
