Who Is This Site For?
This site is the information centre for casting directors in Canada: it is a database as well as a support system. We work together to help each other - whether you need to find another casting director’s contact information or if you want to consult someone about an actor or a negotiation, this is the place to look. If you need to reference our Constitution or read the latest news concerning casting, you’ll find it here. We will also inform you about the Canadian Screen Award for Best Achievement in Casting: check out who won in the past and, when the nominations are announced, see who the nominees are for the current year. You’ll find it all here on the CDC website.
Producers & Directors
Casting is a vital part of your production and we’re here to help. Even in the planning stages we can provide you with information about actors, help interpret the collective agreements with regard to actors, and help in the budgeting of the talent portion of your overall expenses. You can find a specific casting director here and get his or her contact information. If you need information about who specializes in a certain area, we can advise you. If you want to be directed to a casting director who can best fulfill your needs, we have experts who can help.
Agents & Actors
Casting directors are your link to working on productions across the country. If you’re trying to locate a specific casting director, you can find him or her here. If you need information about anything to do with casting, this is the place to look.
