Defaulting Engagers

Engagers who owe outstanding fees, benefits, or any other sums to Equity members, or who are  otherwise in a material and unresolved breach of a contractual agreement with the Association or any of its members are considered to be "defaulting engagers."

No Equity member is permitted to enter into a contractual relationship with a defaulting engager, and defaulting engagers are prohibited from entering into contractual relationships with Equity members.

Members are asked to inform a Business Representative by phone at 1-800-387-1956 (416-867-9165 in Toronto) immediately if offered an engagement by any individual or producer listed below. 


Note: In accordance with the terms of Equity's reciprocal agreement with the U.S. based Actors' Equity Association (AEA), Equity members may not work for engagers appearing on AEA's Do Not Work list as well.
