Welcome to ACTRA’s fabulous new websites!

In addition to the updated look, we are hoping to be able to offer members more easily accessible resources as well as member log-in capabilities. If you have any feedback, please let Administrative Assistant Julie Penner know, as she has been working hand in hand with National to create this vibrant new platform. Thanks to Julie for her always conscientious work on behalf of our membership.

In our ever-changing Covid-19 reality existence, I hope everyone is doing okay and is finding what they need to survive and thrive. There are many ideas out there offering a variety of online resources, helplines and activities including Canada’s Emergency Response Benefit CERB. Also, don’t forget about the Actors Fund of Canada – an incredible support organization always available to ACTRA members and all performers.  Our branch donates regularly to this organization and will be making an additional pledge this year.

Please keep on top of all the information being sent out by ACTRA National and perhaps use this time to update your profile on ACTRAonline and your Casting Workbook site.

Rob, Julie and Liz continue to work their regular hours from home, so do not hesitate to email them your questions/concerns or to thank them for all they do for us.

In Solidarity,

Jan Skene
