“To be an artist in Canada, is to be an activist.”


One of our many roles is to advocate for our work, for better work and for more work.

Take a moment to sign up on the right side of this page to join the ACTRA Toronto ACTRAvist List and help make things better for all performers!


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:

  • Promote our stories
  • Invest in Production
  • Create Jobs

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.

Sign up on the right to Join the ACTRAvist List and learn more about how you can help drive change.

When you sign up to be an ACTRAvist, we make it easy for you to engage with your political representatives and speak up for change that helps our industry to grow and for all of us to get work.

Using the information you provide when you sign up, we will look up your political representatives at each level of government, notify you of important issues and provide you with email and contact information for the politicians who represent you — often with sample messages you can review and edit or send with one click!


Take a Leading Role: Commit Others to Act


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.

We’ve made it easy for you to activate your network.

Sample e-mail to your friends

Hey [insert friend’s name],
Hope you’re well! You might have heard that ACTRA Toronto had a hugely successful Day of Action on October 13th.
Close to 1,000 ACTRA members across Ontario took action and emailed, phoned, met with and tweeted their local politicians to build the support necessary to keep our industry growing and the auditions coming. And it was so easy! A few clicks was all it took to get the message out.
If you add your name to the “ACTRAvist List by signing up here, they will do all the work for you and let you know who your local politicians are and how to contact them. It’s amazing!
I signed up with them. You should too. We depend on politicians to make the right decisions so that more jobs are created here and we’re paid fairly. If decision makers aren’t told how our industry works, we can’t count on them to make the right decisions.
I know you know this. Sign up with me here: and let’s keep up the pressure to make things better for performers.
See you soon,
[Your Name]
