President's Message

Dear ACTRA Montreal members,

I’d like to thank my fellow members for their patience and understanding when dealing with the office and our great staff over the last three years. Since the start of the pandemic, we have been continually understaffed, in a job market that is incredibly competitive. We’ve lost a lot of staff to retirement and to opportunities elsewhere. But the staff that remained were fantastic. They have all taken on increased responsibilities, worked so hard, and made sure we still have a vastly experienced and knowledgeable core.
