President's Message

September 30th is the inaugural National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Created in response to the Commemoration Call to Action 80 from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 2015 report, this day marks an important step in the reconciliation process with Indigenous Peoples of Canada. It is a day to honour the survivors, their families and communities and it’s a solemn reminder of the lives lost at residential schools.

2021 Federal Election

Canadians have spoken and we have a new federal government! Thank you to the ACTRA Members for taking part in our federal election campaign and helping to raise awareness about the key cultural issues affecting Canada’s screen-based industries.

ACTRA stands in solidarity with our Indigenous Members and communities

The tragic and devastating news about the recent discovery of the mass burial site near the Kamloops Indian Residential School containing the bodies of 215 children serves as a heartbreaking reminder and reconfirms how crucial it is for everyone to continue the journey towards truth and reconciliation with Canada’s Indigenous Peoples.
