Statement from Mayor David Miller on ACTRA/CFTPA Dispute
Toronto Mayor David Miller welcomes the resumption of talks between the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists (ACTRA) and the Canadian Film and Television Production Association (CFTPA), and hopes renewed negotiations will result in an agreement that is fair to both parties.

“Toronto values the film and television industry as an important driver of our economy and as a key partner in sustaining our creative city,” said Mayor Miller, who also chairs the Toronto Film Board. He urged ACTRA and CFTPA to stay at the bargaining table until a settlement is reached so striking workers can return to work and production can resume quickly.

“I appreciate the passion and commitment both sides have for the industry and have confidence in their ability to work together towards a resolution that's in the best interests of all concerned,” the Mayor said.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of more than 2.6 million people. It is the economic engine of Canada and one of the greenest and most creative cities in North America. In the past three years Toronto has won more than 50 awards for quality and innovation in delivering public services. Toronto’s government is dedicated to prosperity, opportunity and liveability for all its residents.
