Welcome to ACTRA
ACTRA represents over 28,000 professional performers across Canada working in the English-language recorded media sector. Our members help bring Canadian stories to life in film, television, digital media and commercial productions.
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.
ACTRA advocates for fair pay, respect on set, diversity and inclusion, safety, and more for performers. Every single day. When we stand together, we make things better for all performers. That’s why You’re in Good Company with ACTRA.
Available to members of ACTRA, the Directors Guild of Canada and Canadian Actors' Equity Association, HAVEN Helpline is a national, bilingual critical incident reporting line offering counselling and support services.
