Equity is the voice of professional artists engaging in live performance in English Canada. We are a national association representing almost 6,000 artists working in theatre, opera and dance from coast-to-coast-to-coast. Equity’s membership includes performers, directors, choreographers, fight directors, intimacy directors and stage managers. Equity negotiates and administers scale agreements and administrates engagement policies on behalf of our membership. Both scale agreements (negotiated by Equity with a producer or group of producers) and Equity’s promulgated engagement policies articulate the minimum terms and working conditions required for the engagement of an Equity member.
