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.

Take Action: Protect Canadian stories & storytellers

Canada’s existing Broadcasting Act remains outdated and does not reflect the digital age. Send an E-mail to your Member of Parliament to ensure they understand what's at stake if we do not get this legislation passed as soon as possible.

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.
