The Documentary Organization of Canada (DOC) is the collective voice of independent documentary makers across Canada. DOC is the premiere organization for Canadian documentary advocacy, analyzing policy, conducting insightful research and speaking up at all levels of government to help Canadian documentary flourish.
DOC helps Canadian documentary-makers get their work made and seen. We offer top-notch professional development and networking opportunities through our workshops, master classes, mentorship programs, services and benefits. Our vibrant network of professionals is connected coast-to-coast by an ever-humming members’ discussion group.

Documentary is a uniquely Canadian art form that blends passion, art, observation, humour and criticism. Our country has a rich history of documentary filmmaking, a tradition we honour and celebrate while advocating on behalf of current and future generations of Canadian documentary makers.
