How do I find a Toronto agent for my child or teen?

  • First You can check our links for agents in Toronto that deal with children and teens
  • Second You can check the ACTRA(The Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists) website
  • Third You can also check the TAMAC( Talent Agents and Managers Association of Canada) website
  • Fourth It is not much use responding to advertisements of any kind since legitimate agencies are not supposed to advertise.

Hollywood North

Toronto is often referred to as Hollywood North, because many American films shoot here and there is a ready-made supply of actors and technical personnel.

How do I contact agents? Send in a headshot and a resume in order to make your first communication with an agent. The headshot should look like your child or teen. A short covering letter would be useful as well, introducing your child.

Then you should address the envelope and send it in to the various agencies that you see on this website or on the Actra site or the TAMAC site.

AMIS, which stands for the Acting and Modelling Information Service, was established by professionals in the entertainment business to develop a code of ethics. The Entertainment Industry Coalition(EIC) developed this coded to combat unethical agencies which took advantage of the public.

All the agencies listed on this website and the ACTRA website are either members of the EIC or TAMAC or both and they adhere to proper standards of business.

AMIS has published The Agents Book. which is a very useful tool for aspiring actors or the parents of kids and teens that want to act.

If you do not hear back from any agents, don't take it personally. Show biz is filled with rejection and it is not if you are rejected but how many times. The secret is to not allow rejection to define who you are. It is the determination to keep going that often separates those that succeed from those that don't.

If you don't hear from an agent, make sure you improve your child's opportunities in the future by improving his or her resume with classes or parts in amateur productions. It might be difficult to get into a show, but it is not difficult to get into a class.

Acting Classes. It is always a good thing to put your child or teen into acting classes in order to develop skills, learn the neccessary work ethic and to network with other people in the business.

In six months send a new photo and an updated resume to these same agencies.

Let agents know what your child is up to.A young actor was performing in a play in Toronto. I sent notes to every agency in Toronto asking the agents to come and see the show. Two responded. They did not come and see the show but they agreed to meet with her, and she got offers from both agencies.

It is a full time job building your child's career and initially, it can mean a lot of heartache. But hard work and determination can move mountains. Dependability and reliability are highly-valued commodities in show biz.

In conclusion; While hard work, ambition and talent are neccessary for success, having the right information is also important. Educate yourself. Learn the ropes. We have a lot of info on our website geared to the young actor. ACTRA, AMIS and TAMAC are also good websites for Canadian actors.

Start Now. And as they say in show business; Break a Leg!
