ACTRA Manitoba

ACTRA (Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists) is the union of more than 23,000 professional performers working in English-language recorded media in Canada including TV, film, radio and digital media.

We are actors, recording artists, comedians, announcers, stunt co-ordinators & 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. Performers who work ACTRA have access to a full range of health benefits provided by ACTRA Fraternal Benefit Society (AFBS). Created in 1975 by ACTRA members, AFBS was formed to provide insurance and retirement services at a time when benefits available through other insurance companies could not meet the distinctive needs of performers.
