Our industry is responsible for 32,489 full time equivalent jobs and contributes more than $1.5 billion to the Ontario economy. To increase production levels, create more jobs, and guarantee basic protections for artists, we need to be stay on the radar of Government decision makers.
That’s why on October 13, close to 1,000 ACTRA members across Ontario took action and emailed, phoned, met with and tweeted at their local politicians:
Members across Ontario emailed, telephoned and tweeted their local politicians. Dozens of members met with politicians in their constituencies. They told our stories, helped them to understand our incredible contribution to the economy and the stable, ongoing support our industry needs to continue to grow and produce work for all of us.

To be an actor is to be an activist. To be an activist is to activate your network!
If just 100 ACTRAvist members signed up 5 friends, we would have 500 more people committed to act. That’s 500 more ACTRAvists tweeting, emailing and phoning decision makers.
This is how we build a movement. This is how we make change.
