How we work

The WGC is governed by a seven-member council of screenwriter members, who set policies and oversee Guild activities. Additional advice and input is received from a 16-member national forum, who meet annually with the council and staff. Both bodies are composed of Guild members elected for two-year terms from Canada's four regions (Atlantic, Quebec, Central, and Pacific Western). The executive director and staff manage the Guild's day-to-day operations.
