Nominations Are Open for the 2017 ACTRA Toronto Stunt Committee Elections!

Attention ACTRA Toronto Stunt Community Members:

The ACTRA Toronto Stunt Committee is composed of 5 elected members and 3 alternates. This committee elects its chairperson from the members of the committee.

If you are interested in running, you must meet the eligibility requirements below, and submit your  ACTRA Toronto Stunt Committee Nomination Form by Friday, September 29, 2017.

What does the ACTRA Toronto Stunt Committee do?

Stunt Committee members bring their experience as stunt performers, their familiarity with our collective agreements, and their commitment to building work opportunities and improving health and safety on set to:

  • Address current issues facing stunt performers on-set
  • Reach out and involve ACTRA’s stunt performers in member conferences, workshops, events, and the collective bargaining process
  • Plan and engage in ACTRA’s Respect the Artist and legislative campaigns to build work opportunities and improve working conditions

Who is eligible to participate in this vote?

According to the  ACTRA Toronto By-Laws, to be eligible to nominate, run for election or vote for the Toronto Stunt Committee, an ACTRA member must:

  1. Be a Full Member in good standing of ACTRA Toronto; and
  2. Have worked on at least 3 stunt contracts in the last 24 months.

Recognizing that there may be special circumstances where, for example, a stunt performer has been unable to work on at least 3 stunt contracts in the last 24 months as a result of a disability or due to retirement, a member may apply to have their name added to the voters list by October 5th, 2017. Applications to add names to the voters list will be considered by the ACTRA Toronto Executive Director or designate.

Recipients of the ACTRA Toronto Stunt Community Award will be added as permanent members of the voters list.

Note, we are conducting ACTRA Toronto Council elections at the same time. Stunt performers who are eligible to run for the stunt committee may also run for a position on the ACTRA Toronto Council.

Stunt Committee members, in addition to their commitment and passion for their work, are strong team players, with well-developed communication skills, a sense of humour, and a strong desire to improve the working terms and conditions of all performers.

Diversity is our strength. ACTRA Toronto is committed to gender equality and the representation of physically and culturally diverse performers throughout the union.

Taking the next step

Consider running for the ACTRA Toronto Stunt Committee or encourage someone you respect to run. The  ACTRA Toronto Stunt Committee Nomination Form must be completed (both sides) and returned by Friday, September 29, 2017.
