Connecting Content Producers to Canada's Screenwriters
Important notice to producers: You will need to register to access our Member Directory, even if you were already registered on our older site. We apologize for this inconvenience. Applications will be reviewed and approved quickly. Please contact us at 416-979-7907 or 1-800-567-9974 if you need assistance.
Find the perfect screenwriter for your project. The Guild's Member Directory gives producers access to complete writer profiles and agent contact information. Save search criteria, shortlist writers and share shortlists with others.
Remittances for working dues, admin fees, GST/HST and insurance and retirement amounts can always be made using our Excel worksheet form, or if you are remitting multiple times or for many writers, you can apply for our online system.
Our online payment remittance system makes it easy for you to stay on top of payments and ensure compliance with collective agreements.
The WGC has developed a new application for producers to remit their writer payments and information online. The new application, called the Producer Remittance Entry System (PRES), is available to all producers who are remitting to the Guild and is both a green initiative to replace existing paper remittances and a time-saving opportunity for both producers and the Guild.
The new system is designed to save producers time when remitting payment information since much of the information can be selected from dropdown options. Producers can continue to pay the Guild by cheque or make arrangements for other payment options. Our new system is secure and each producer must be either a parent, signatory or rights holder to access payment information and then only information that is related to their own projects or writers contracted on those projects.
