ACTRA (Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists) is the national union of professional performers working in recorded media in Canada. ACTRA represents the interests of over 30,000 members across the country - the foundation of Canada's highly acclaimed professional performing community.

We are actors, recording artists, comedians, announcers, stunt co-ordinators and performers, dancers, narrators, voice performers, hosts, choreographers, models, singers, background performers, puppeteers and more.

ACTRA's principal role is to negotiate, administer and enforce collective agreements to provide performers with equitable compensation as well as safe and reasonable working conditions.

ACTRA is proud to be a leading voice for Canadian culture and the development of Canada's audiovisual industries. We lobby for regulation and government policies that protect our culture and encourage audiovisual production in all genres, thereby expanding work opportunities for Canadian performers.

ACTRA Performers' Rights Society (PRS) operates as a performer collective management organization (CMO) with a mandate to represent the rights and interests of artists who perform in audiovisual productions. In addition to PRS, the Recording Artists' Collecting Society (RACS) collects and distributes Copyright royalties (including neighbouring rights and private copying royalties) to sound recording performers from Canada and around the world.

ACTRA is the sum of over 30,000 artists who have come together to build the strongest cultural union in Canada. We are passionate and determined to protect our past victories while constantly moving our union forward.
