Happy Holidays! Equity Office Closure Dates
RWP The holidays are fast approaching and it’s a great time to reflect on the wonderfully inspiring works of theatre, dance, and opera we’ve enjoyed this past year. On behalf of Equity staff, we sincerely wish our members a safe and happy holiday season, and we look forward to what 2024 has to bring!

Please be advised, Equity offices will be closed from Thursday, December 21, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. local time (Toronto and Vancouver), re-opening Wednesday, January 3, 2024, at 9:00 a.m. local time.

Emergency Contact and Support Emergency support will remain available over the holidays. After-hours emergencies, defined as health and safety situations in the workplace or non-payment of contractual fees, may be reported by calling the National Office at 1-800-387-1856 (416-867-9165 in Toronto) and following the 'In case of an emergency' prompts. Your call will be responded to as soon as possible.

Productions and Contracts Engagers are strongly encouraged to send notifications regarding production(s) scheduled to commence between now and January 15, 2024, to the applicable Business Representative as soon as possible and no later than December 11, 2023.

Engagers should also remit all outstanding amounts owing so that members are credited for their 2023 RRSP contributions in the correct year.
