1. Hand out Movie Money with every purchase you make: Movie Money is available at all the Union/Guild offices. We have also provided a PDF file downloadable from our website

2. Contact your MLA – by phone, email, or letter – use MLA finder. Each union’s websites have the MLA finder link as well as sample letters and tips when contacting your MLA. We suggest that you telephone your MLA. If you need to leave a message, let them know you are a constituent and calling about the film industry. Ask for a call back. Remember to be respectful.

7. Call your candidates in the upcoming election! The unions will be providing some questions to ask to gauge where the candidates stand with regard to their support of the film industry. Attend the all candidates meetings in your riding and ask these questions. Let’s ensure our issues are in the top of the candidate’s minds.

8. Watch your union’s website and facebook pages for upcoming events. We will also be posting the candidate’s responses to our questions which will inform our members about who supports our issues in the upcoming election.
