The Professional Association of Canadian Theatres is a service organization for professional theatre companies across the country. The organization acts as a collective voice for its member companies. For example, PACT represents Canadian Theatres in negotiations for the Canadian Theatre Agreement (CTA) with the Canadian Actor’s Equity Association (CAEA).

PACT is an association for professional theatre companies only; this means that all artists your company engages must receive payment for their work.

Types of Memberships

You have to apply for your company to be a member of PACT. There are four types of memberships, Regular, Commercial, Associate, and Affliiate.

Regular & Commercial
