Get Involved With ACTRA Toronto
ACTRA Toronto Membership Solidarity
ACTRA is in the early stages of a multi-phase I Work ACTRA campaign -- which works to the benefit of both performers and their agents by protecting basic rates and conditions. A reminder of a few of ACTRA's membership rules:
- ACTRA members (Full, Apprentice and ACTRA Additional Background Performers) cannot audition for non-union work.
- ACTRA members (Full, Apprentice and ACTRA Additional Background Performers) can only work on ACTRA signatory productions. This includes film, television, commercials, new media, reality, on or off camera voicing, industrial, corporate, educational video, etc. If you are unsure contact the ACTRA office.
- ACTRA members who worked on a non-union production prior to joining cannot provide any subsequent services on the production without an ACTRA contract (by working with us in these situations, you can help us re-contract many of these productions to the benefit of all of the performers on them).
- ACTRA members who work on out of country productions must do so under a union contract. The member must be contracted under the local performers union or where there is no union the member must be on an ACTRA contract.
For more information about this campaign, check back at this page and look for your ACTRA Toronto membership emails.
