As ACTRA continues to move more of its services online, voting on the ratification of collective agreements and constitutional referenda will soon be conducted exclusively online.
Why is this important?
Your participation matters. Have your say on issues of importance, such as the ratification of ACTRA’s collective agreements and constitutional referenda, which are conducted by online ballot only.
Help your union serve YOU better. If we don’t have your E-mail contact, you won’t be able to exercise your voice in ratification votes, constitutional referenda, or other union business.
What does this mean for ACTRA Members?
No further action is required from ACTRA Members who have an E-mail address on file with ACTRA. You will continue to have your say on the work of your union by receiving voting information, including your online ballot, by E-mail. If your E-mail address has changed, please ensure you provide ACTRA with your new contact information (see below).
Members who do not have an E-mail address on file with ACTRA will be notified by mail and asked to provide an E-mail address so they can continue to have their say on the work of their union. Under ACTRA’s Constitution and By-Laws, ACTRA Members have an obligation to maintain specific contact information, including their personal mailing address, telephone number and E-mail address, with their local Branch.
What do I do if I do not have an E-mail address on file with ACTRA or my E-mail address has changed?
Members may provide or update their E-mail address through one of the following options:
- Contact your local Branch; or
- Log-in to the ACTRA Membership System (AMS) and update your profile.
How do I create a free E-mail account?

If you do not have Internet access, please contact your local public library or community centre to inquire about accessing computers with Internet access.
Who should I contact if I have a question or need assistance?
You can either contact your local Branch, or contact ACTRA National’s help desk between 9:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. ET Monday to Friday by phone (416-489-1311 x4037 or 1-800-387-3516 x4037) or E-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
