Your instructor:

Chris Enns is a certified financial planner (CFP) and former opera singer. He spent 10 years as a performing artist and learned the hard way that ignoring money doesn’t really work. He is the founder of Rags to Reasonable - an advice only financial planning firm that specializes in working with creatives and people with other non-traditional financial situations.

Equity encourages artists from all equity-seeking groups to access our Mental Health & Wellness program and to attend the online Webinars. Facilitating participation of historically under-represented communities in these and all of Equity’s activities is a fundamental commitment to Equity’s membership.

As artists across the country return to work in the live performance industry, it is imperative that we consider the impact the pandemic has had on each of us and the importance of using our training to create a safe and equitable workplace. Equity gratefully acknowledges the Government of Canada for the funding of these programs through the Department of Canadian Heritage, Canada Performing Arts Workers Resilience Fund (CPAWRF). / Equity tient à remercier le Gouvernement du Canada, qui a financé le Programme de réactivation par le biais de Patrimoine Canada et du Fonds pour la résilience des travailleurs du secteur des spectacles sur scène du Canada (FRTSSSC).
