Our Mission & Vision

PACT is a member-driven organization of professional Canadian theatres which serves as the collective voice of its members. For the betterment of Canadian theatre, PACT provides leadership, national representation and a variety of programs and practical assistance to member companies, enabling members to do their own creative work.

We are a leader in the national performing arts community, and a devoted advocate for the value of live performance. Since 1979 we have focused on providing a community where theatre professionals (both artistic and administrative) can come together to discuss important issues and work together to create innovative solutions.

We aim to be a responsive organization, cognizant of the needs of our members in order to offer programs and services that benefit our community.

We strive to be representative of the true breadth of professional theatre in this country, and work to make sure we are an inclusive organization that provides value for all theatre companies in Canada.

We believe:

  • Theatre makes an essential contribution to Canadian life on every level – social and economic
  • The experience of theatre should be readily accessible to all Canadians
  • Theatre companies should be as diverse as the Canadian society they reflect
  • People who work in the theatre are professionals who deserve supportive working environments – structured enough to provide security, but flexible enough to encourage creativity, afford risk and accommodate change
