PACT is a member-led organization and also one that works to improve the entire Canadian theatre industry. Our members are consulted often and invited to share their concerns, challenges and successes with the PACT community. We strive to be responsive to the needs of our members and our community to help guide the industry as a whole. Through our collective influence we have built productive relationships with elected officials, civil servants (including those at the Department of Canadian Heritage), and staff at the Canada Council for the Arts. We have forged relationships with other theatre associations across the country and globally.

In order to better know and work with the larger professional theatre community, we are now offering engagement levels we are calling the PACT Colleague Network.

Becoming part of the PACT Colleague Network will connect you and your company to more than 140 professional theatre companies and a network of theatre professionals who believe in and share our objectives and principles.

There are three ways to become a PACT Colleague: Organizational Colleague, Individual Colleague, and Student Colleague. Each of these colleague types bring strength to the voice of theatre in Canada.

All PACT Colleagues are connected to our Region and Caucus network, receive a discount on conference registration, have access to resources and toolkits developed by PACT, and are eligible for the Travel Subsidy Fund.

We invite you to explore how PACT can help you and what you can bring to our community.
