Are you a performer AND a parent?! Do you need childcare services?

ACTRA Montreal is very happy to announce that we have struck a deal with two childcare service providers that can help you with the challenge of balancing the needs of your family with the demands of our industry.

Thanks to the work of the Childcare Services Committee (Chaired by Stephanie Breton), you can now access vetted, qualified, fully trained professionals that could assist you when you are looking for:

  • Somewhere to drop your kids off for work or an audition
  • Someone to accompany you to an audition to watch your kids
  • Someone to come to your residence to watch your kids while you work (or maybe come to an ACTRA event?)

And best of all, you get a fantastic discount as an ACTRA member!
