The AFC is the lifeline for Canada’s entertainment industry. Through compassionate and confidential support, they help Canadian entertainment professionals maintain their health, dignity and ability to work.

Union Savings was founded on a simple principle; leveraging our collective strength as Canadian union members to deliver high quality, low cost benefits to union members and their families across Canada. To further reflect the values of the labour movement that we all share, Union Savings operates as Canada’s only not-for-profit, union run, members’ benefit program. When union members experience benefits outside of the workplace as well as inside the workplace the value of their membership is enhanced. The more opportunities we create to engage with our members, the stronger our unions become.

To assist members, the Canadian Office has created a form that they can sign and give to their employer, their home local, and many locals whose jurisdiction they’re working in when they start a job. This form, along with an information sheet, can be found here:
