Dispensation Package

Members must apply to DGC Alberta for dispensation to work without a Guild contract in any Guild category on any production, and may not commence work without prior written approval from DGC Alberta. Only individuals can receive dispensation; when a production is deemed to be eligible for dispensation, the onus is still on the individual Member to obtain appropriate written permission to work on it. Dispensation will not be granted retroactively; forms must be submitted to DGC Alberta prior to commencement of work. 

*The “H&W Participation Agreement” is not mandatory and should be completed only when a Producer has agreed to make H&W contributions on a Member’s behalf despite the production not being signed to a DGC Agreement.
