The CARFAC-RAAV Minimum Recommended Fee Schedule is widely recognized as the national standard for remuneration of visual and media artists in Canada. These payments include royalties for the exhibition and reproduction of an artist’s work, as well as various professional services fees.
The Fee Schedule is updated regularly through negotiation and usage, with annual increases reflecting changes in the cost of living. Copyright royalties and professional fees may be subject to GST/PST/HST, which is not included in the listed fees.
The Fee Schedule was previously located at www.carcc.ca, the former website of Copyright Visual Arts (CARCC). Copyright Visual Arts has a new website and its own guidelines for royalties, and they negotiate them directly with presenters on behalf of their affiliated members. Now that we have found a new home for our Fee Schedule, please adjust your bookmarks and weblinks accordingly.
A proposal with various changes was presented to the members of CARFAC for a vote at our AGM on Saturday, September 28, 2019. The changes were approved and they will be in effect on January 1, 2020 for a period of four years, with a 2% annual increase in each year. Please also note that the Fee Schedule for 2020 has been posted in English only for now. A translation will be provided soon, as well as rates for 2021-2023.
