Protecting yourself in the case of an accident when volunteering is paramount. There is nothing worse than sustaining an injury on a day that you are working for free that can keep you from taking a paid gig. If you are looking to volunteer to create a Member Initiated Production (MIP), register with CNESST for an annual insurance that covers accidents on set.

Why a MIP?

MIPs encourage members to come together and create original works of art without having the financial resources to pay daily fees to performers. They allow members to advance their skills as actors, along with having them develop their skills in other various key creative areas.

 If you are producing a MIP, to ensure your health and safety, please register yourself for an annual CNESST insurance as a volunteer by following these steps.
