Canadian Signatory Services*

Together with our business partners, who are established Canadian production companies, our comprehensive signatory service enables them to act as the signatory on your behalf in any ACTRA or Union des Artistes branch across Canada and TPS then handles all the talent payments.

Our trusted business partners have an experienced and established liaison to handle all pre-production estimates, union communications and negotiations on your behalf to allow you to capitalize on the benefits of hiring reliable and qualified union performers. Once the shoot is completed, the talent payments are processed at superior market rates by the TPS expert systems and people. As always, the TPS tracking and reporting technologies keep you constantly aware of any upcoming residual or dormancy payments.

*Please note: This service is intended for non-Canadian agencies only that do not have a Canadian office

“TPS is our best source when it comes to advice on Talent Union rulings…sessions and residuals are paid in a timely manner and estimates when required are done within our time frames…couldn’t do my job without them.”

– Jane Thompson, Director of Broadcast Traffic/Talent, Young & Rubicam (Toronto)
