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.
From scenic fishing villages to majestic mountains, Newfoundland and Labrador also offer a highly developed film infrastructure including post-production facilities, a professional and experienced cast and crew base, and the largest sound stage in Atlantic Canada.
ACTRA is calling on the Government of Canada to adhere to its original CERB eligibility requirements, which allowed self-employed Canadians to use their gross pre-tax income when determining their eligibility.
