Running for Election to the ACTRA Toronto Stunt Committee
This fall, we will hold elections for our ACTRA Toronto Stunt Committee. The ACTRA Toronto Stunt Committee is composed of 5 elected members and 3 alternates. Once elected, the Stunt Committee elects a chairperson from the members of the committee.
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 Toronto’s stunt performers in member conferences, workshops, events, and the collective bargaining process
- Plan and engage in ACTRA Toronto’s legislative campaigns to build work opportunities and improve working conditions
