The IATSE administers both a national health plan and a national retirement plan for the roughly 16,000 members we have in Canada. There are a few locals that administer their own plans, but the majority of Canadian locals participate in the two national plans.
Canadian National Health Plan
The IATSE Canadian National Health Plan was established in 2011 and offers participating locals flexibility in terms of what benefits each local provides for its members. Available benefits include prescription, vision, and dental coverage as well as coverage for a host of other benefits such as physiotherapists or acupuncturists.
