The Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists (ACTRA) is a Canadian labour union representing performers in English-language media. It has 22,000 members working in film, television, radio and all other recorded media.
The organization negotiates, safeguards, and promotes the professional rights of its members. It also works to increase work opportunities for its members and lobbies for policy changes at the municipal, provincial and federal levels.
ACTRA’s regional chapters present ACTRA Awards to honour the best in Canadian radio and television performances in their local productions..
