RRSP Plan


The Canadian Entertainment Industry Retirement Plan (CEIRP) is the Savings & Retirement plan for most IATSE Locals, Directors Guild of Canada (DGC), Entertainment Partners Canada, Actsafe Safety Association and the BC Council of Film Unions – across the country.

Growing your savings for life after work makes sense.

And CEIRP makes saving easy.

No one should have to keep working past retirement age
simply because they can’t afford to stop.

That’s why CEIRP was created.

And as a member of one of the many participating unions/guilds,
CEIRP is a very significant – and important – part of your membership benefits.

The goal of CEIRP?

  • Create an easy way to save – and provide flexibility and choice for your savings needs and goals.
  • Negotiate super-low fees – to help you keep more of your money invested and earning over time.
  • Provide education opportunities and communication– to help you make good personal decisions about finances and savings.
