ACTRA Montreal Appoints First Ombuds

The local branch of the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists has named Matt Holland as its first Ombudsperson.  According to the union's website, the Ombuds "will act as an impartial intermediary between the branch and any member – assisting the member in communicating any issues and helping to identify possible solutions to problems that arise between individual members and our branch."

Matt Holland is a professional performer, screenwriter and past President of ACTRA Montreal.  He has also worked extensively as a development executive, serving as a television content analyst for Telefilm Canada and, more recently, as a manager of development and production for the CTV network. He is a Communications and Creative Writing graduate of Concordia University and a graduate of both the Writer’s Lab and the Professional Screenwriting Programme at The Canadian Film Centre.
ACTRA Montreal represents nearly 3,000 professional performers working in the English-language recorded media in Quebec.  (ACTRA Montreal Press Release.)
