ACTRA Newfoundland/Labrador represents the interests of almost 200 members and is one of the nine branches of ACTRA, the national union of over 27,000 professional performers working in English-language recorded media in Canada.
As your new president, I’m reaching out in this challenging and unprecedented time to assure you that we are taking care of each other. Our ACTRA members are some of the most generous, compassionate and creative people in my circle. While I know it may change many things, I hope this crisis will also make us more resilient. Right now, it’s imperative to take care of yourselves, your families, and do what it takes to stay healthy. You may be in isolation, but with your ACTRA family you are not alone here.
