Welcome to ACTRA

                        ACTRA represents over 27,000 professional performers across Canada working in the English-language recorded media sector. Our members help bring Canadian stories to life in film, television and digital media.

                        COVID-19 Updates

                        In this challenging and unprecedented time, it is important that our ACTRA family takes care of each other. This is why we created a dedicated webpage with COVID-19 updates for our members, including information on financial and well-being support resources.

                        ACTRA National Constitution Referendum

                        ACTRA is conducting a referendum on the National Constitution to create a new national governance structure. This new structure was designed to better reflect the demographics of our membership while bringing a diversity of voices to ACTRA’s National Council.
