Artist Payout

We try to make the process as easy as possible for artist payouts at the end of the Festival. We offer three types of payouts depending on your home address; A cheque made out in CAD, Direct Deposit (for those with a Canadian bank account), or International Wire Transfer (for those with an International bank account). Some key points to remember:

  • One payment only per company will be issued for all ticket sales for the 2018 Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival.
  • Direct Deposit for Canadian Bank Accounts
    • If you wish to have a direct deposit, please fill out a direct deposit form (found on the Documents section, Canadian Bank Account Form) and email it to Celia (mcghan@fringetheatre.ca). Alternatively you can email her with a copy of a void cheque (include your reference number and show title in the email for all communication).
    • We will do our best to accommodate all requested payout methods but please send Celia your form or void cheque before Monday, July 30 to ensure we can accommodate your request.
  • Wire Transfer
    • If you are an international artist and wish to have your payout via wire transfer, please fill out a wire transfer form (found in the Documents section, International Wire Transfer Form) and email it to Celia (mcghan@fringetheatre.ca) (include your reference number and show title in the email for all communication).
    • We will do our best to accommodate all requested payout methods but please send Celia your form or void cheque before Monday, July 30 to ensure we can accommodate your request.
  • Cheque
    • We encourage all local and national (and international artists with a Canadian bank account) to opt for direct deposit. However, if we do not hear from you, your payout will be done via mailed cheque.
    • Unless otherwise notified, all cheques will be made out to the Primary Contact name and mailing address.
    • Cheques will be available for collection on Monday, August 27 between 2 PM – 5 PM from the Artist Services window in the Westbury Lobby. If they are not collected during this time they will be mailed to the address of the Primary contact.
    • Fringe Theatre will only release the payout cheque to the Primary or Secondary contact and these individuals are required to show photo identification. No photo identification = no payout cheques.
    • All artists can cash their cheques at the local branch of ATB Financial. The branch is located at 8008 – 104 Street. There will be a $20.00 fee to cash the cheque at the ATB branch on Whyte if you are not an ATB member.
    • Non-Canadian artists who plan on cashing their cheque in Canada: the cheque name must match your passport.
    • Please note that Fringe Theatre cannot cash any payout cheques under any circumstances.
