Canadian Rate Card Survey
We're working towards creating a rate card for audio producers in Canada.

We're curious about what sort of work you do, how long you've been doing it and what your experiences and expectations are around pay.

Thank you to Eleanor McDowall and Heidi Pett for sharing the UK edition of this with us.
