Our Values

PGC is an organization that:
Is inclusive and representative (geography, diverse backgrounds, age, stage of development, gender and sexual orientation);
Maintains the standards and practices of the profession;
Affirms the importance of playwriting as an art;
Safeguards freedom of expression in Canadian theatres;
Contributes to the development of the art form;
Strives to remain relevant within the larger community.
We champion the role of the playwright in the creation of vibrant Canadian theatre.

To advance the creative rights and interests of professional Canadian playwrights, promote Canadian plays nationally and internationally, and foster an active, evolving community of writers for the stage.


Main Activities

Playwrights Guild of Canada (PGC) is a national arts service organization for playwrights in Canada. We offer over twenty-five programs that encourage pluralism, promotion, and the protection of playwrights’ rights and their work. We also provide many opportunities for the public to access, explore, and enjoy the work of Canadian playwrights.
