ACTRA is campaigning to Keep Canada on our Screens and we need your help. Our $9 billion film and television industry makes a significant contribution to Canada’s economy. It’s more important than ever all levels of Canadian government understand, recognize and support our industry. This election website has all you need to know so you can play an active role in guiding the direction of our country for the next four years.
A message from your President
The federal election is around the corner and we’re asking ACTRA members to make their voices heard – and the best way to do this in an election year is on a local level. Just Ask your local candidates if they and their party support a strong film and television sector. Just Ask them where they stand on investment in Canadian content production. And, most importantly, make sure to get out and vote on October 21!
ACTRA puts issues affecting Canadian performers front and centre during election season so our members can make an informed decision before they cast their votes. Let’s Keep Canada on our Screens by putting Canadian stories and talent at the heart of our next government’s cultural policy. Download backgrounders and other campaign resources that shine a spotlight on the key cultural issues at stake.
Find out what you need to know before you go to the polls on October 21 or how to vote if you can’t cast your ballot in person on election day. Read more
