About

The DGC actively promotes both the interests of its members and the importance of Canada’s screen-based industries in all their formats and platforms. It does this by developing public policy initiatives both independently and in concert with other guilds and associations and pre-eminently, through the example of the high quality of work created by its Members. Recognizing the linkages and concerns it shares with other cultural and labour organizations, the Guild works closely with the Writers Guild of Canada, ACTRA, the Screen Composers (who are now formally allied with the DGC), Quebec labour organizations, the Canadian Labour Congress and the Canadian Media Producers Association to highlight and situate the screen-based industries as an integral part of the Canadian cultural landscape. The DGC also represents these industries at an international level, through its close collaboration with organizations like the Directors Guild of America.
