Model contracts for the employment of church musicians, either as an employee or as a self-employed contractor are available. It in important to be aware of the distinction that Canada Revenue Agency makes between an employee and a self-employed contractor. CRA's publication RC4110 "Employee or Self-employed?" provides details on deciding the appropriate employment status. Before entering into a self-employed contract, members should consult with an employment specialist to confirm that such a contract is appropriate for their situation. Membership should feel free to contact the Professional Support group within the RCCO through the National Office or in local Centres.
