ACTRA represents over 27,000 professional performers across Canada working in the English-language recorded media sector. Our members help bring Canadian stories to life in film, television and digital media.
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.
ACTRA is conducting a referendum on the National Constitution to create a new national governance structure. This new structure was designed to better reflect the demographics of our membership while bringing a diversity of voices to ACTRA’s National Council.
ACTRA Performers’ Rights Society (PRS) is the arm of ACTRA that collects and disburses use fees, royalties, residuals and all other forms of compensation or remuneration that performers may be entitled to as a result of their work.
Canadian performers are shining a spotlight on ACTRA member Sarah Polley by naming her their 2020 ACTRA National Woman of the Year. ACTRA bestows this honour annually on an ACTRA member who excels in both her artistic and advocacy achievements.
