The Canadian entertainment industry now has a draft code of conduct

In the era of #MeToo and #TimesUp, the Canadian entertainment industry has come up with the draft of a code of conduct.

ACTRA, TIFF, the Writers Guild of Canada, the Canadian Media Guild, the CBC and at least a dozen other organizations have banded together to create a new set of rules designed to “help prevent and respond to harassment including sexual harassment, discrimination, bullying and violence.”

Everyone involved has pledged to develop “effective reporting mechanisms” and “multi-level education and training programs.” Policies of “zero tolerance, proportional consequences, consent-based interactions and no retaliation” are being reaffirmed.
