President's Message

Simon Peacock
These are challenging times for ACTRA Montreal, as we face a crisis like none other in our history. I want members to know that we are still working hard. Payments are being processed, your questions are being answered, and we continue to advocate for the rights of performers. We are also lobbying all levels of government to ensure we get the financial support we need to get through these trying times. Please keep checking the website and our social media pages to get the latest news. In the meantime stay safe and look after each other - it’s what Unions do.
