Advertisement Toronto, January 28, 2019 – A new census commissioned by ACTRA Toronto and ACTRA Ottawa with funding provided by Ontario Creates shows that the average earnings of Ontario ACTRA screen performers are not only substantially lower than Ontario workers in all industries, they are also significantly lower than other Ontario workers in the arts, entertainment and recreation industry.Membership and demographic information provided by the 3,409 ACTRA members who participated in the Ontario ACTRA Census was linked to earnings data to provide valuable insight into issues of compensation, access to work and pay equity.According to ACTRA Toronto Treasurer Richard Young, one of the study’s authors, “Performers are precarious workers, by any definition of the term, and the census results confirm that financial hardship is a reality for most performers.” According to ACTRA Toronto Treasurer Richard Young, one of the study’s authors, “Performers are precarious workers, by any definition of the term, and the census results confirm that financial hardship is a reality for most performers.”But Young acknowledged that there is lots of work still to do. “Thanks to the Ontario ACTRA Census respondents, we now have the numbers to show that significant performer wage gaps currently exist, correlated with gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity and physical and mental diversity. That may be no surprise to the performers affected but, now that we have solid metrics, we can accurately track the entertainment industry’s real progress on access and inclusion and work with other industry partners to create the changes needed. That’s huge.”ACTRA Toronto is the largest organization within ACTRA, representing over 15,000 of Canada’s 25,000 professional performers working in recorded media in Canada. As an advocate for Canadian culture since 1943, ACTRA is a member-driven union that continues to secure rights and respect for the work of professional performers.Ontario Creates (formerly OMDC) is a provincial agency that facilitates economic development, investment and collaboration in Ontario’s creative industries including the music, book, magazine, film, television and interactive digital media sectors. ontariocreates.caLink to Ontario ACTRA CensusLink to Ontario ACTRA Census Infographic Advertisement Facebook Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Login/Register With: Twitter

It mirrors what former Prime Minister Jean Chretien managed in the vote split between the Progressive Conservatives and the Reform Party.The Liberals were not the only party to suffer from a crippling blow.The Bloc Quebecois faced major losses in Quebec, a province it once dominated federally, at the hands of the NDP which triggered an orange wave sweeping up the majority of ridings.
