Working in Canada’s film and entertainment industry can be a wild ride. There are high-paying projects, fun and creative work, and the satisfaction of producing something that you can be proud of. However, it’s not all rainbows and sunshine. The industry is known for its job uncertainty and seasonal work.
Many of us in the industry are hired on a project-by-project basis, which can result in periods of high-paying work followed by periods of little or no work at all. This type of irregular income can make it hard to plan and save for the future, leading to financial stress and uncertainty.
