Lockout of ACTRA performers by some advertising agencies

For months, some advertising agencies have locked-out ACTRA performers who make commercials. Our performances made award-winning ads that got results—just as we’ve done for more than 60 years under a collective agreement these agencies tried to kill. But we’re fighting back and the agencies are feeling they’ve acted on bad advice.

Celebrating Canada’s stunt professionals

Canadian entertainment history is being made with the launch of the Canadian Stunt Hall of Fame (CANSHOF) website and by the naming of the very first Canadian Stunt Hall of Fame Inductees.
