Changes to the CARFAC-RAAV Fee Schedule

The CARFAC-RAAV Minimum Recommended Fee Schedule is updated regularly through negotiation and usage. A list of priorities was reviewed and refined by our Fee Schedule Review committee in early 2023. A survey was publicly available in April and May, with responses from over 350 artists and nearly 1oo organizations. Their feedback was used to make further amendments to the proposal, which were discussed and presented among stakeholders from May until August, 2023.

The proposal outlines several recommendations for changes for the years 2024 to 2027. The Fee Schedule Review committee met with Canadian Art Museum Directors Organization members in July.  Based on these discussions, the several revisions were made to our original proposal.

The proposal included:

  • an 8% increase in rates for 2024 and a 4% annual increase for 2025 to 2027;
  • changes to the way group exhibitions and permanent collection exhibitions are calculated;
  • the creation of a new type of fee for exhibitions with art for sale; and
  • various modifications to reproduction royalties and artist professional services fees.

The above changes were approved in September, and they are in effect as of January 1, 2024.

Rates for 2024 – 2027 are now available. To view the correct rates for your project, choose the year in which the exhibition, reproduction, or service takes place.
