Why work ACTRA?

Producers hire ACTRA members because they meet a standard of skill, training, professionalism and dedication to their craft. Working as an ACTRA member assures productions they have hired the best in the industry.

More importantly, when you work under an ACTRA contract, you can be confident a strong union with 28,000 members across the country has your back. You’re in good company.

What rights do ACTRA members have on set? Here are just a few:

  • the right to a fair wage
  • the right to compensation for use of the performer’s image and performance
  • the right to safe and acceptable working conditions
  • the right to artistic freedom
  • the right to maintain control over artistic output
  • the right to be treated with respect as an integral part of the production industry and as a contributin member to Canada’s cultural landscape


These kinds of rights are not guaranteed under a non-union contract. ACTRA, your union, always has and always will protect these rights.

Be in good company. Get the career you deserve. Work ACTRA.
