Canada Performing Arts Workers Resilience Fund

Partly due to the IATSE’s lobbying efforts, financial assistance funding through the Canada Performing Arts Workers Resilience Fund is available. Live performance workers can apply for a one-time, maximum payment of $2,500. This assistance can be used for anything that would help the worker maintain a career in the industry, including costs such as rent, bills, groceries, or even tools.
