Investors in Canada’s creative industries commit to ensuring a safe and respectful work environment for all

Montréal, April 17, 2018 – As investors in Canada’s creative industries, we are committed to working together, alongside our industry partners and stakeholders, towards taking measures that ensure a safe and respectful work environment for all.

Today, we share our common guiding principles that will serve as a basis for our actions going forward. These principles are a result of discussions held over the last three months. Each organization will have its own approach and/or plan inspired by this joint commitment, and many have already begun implementation.

These guiding principles are a first step in an ongoing process to create sustainable mechanisms to shift the current workplace culture in our creative industries.

We salute the associations, guilds and other organizations who have contributed to this important work, and we thank the brave individuals from across the country who have come forward with their stories.

Together, along with all members of the creative industries, we will continue to work to achieve positive change.
