A MESSAGE FROM WARREN P. SONODA
… On a day that saw a lot of things go down electorally (the timing can’t be more prescient), I am honoured and excited to accept the National Presidency of the Directors Guild of Canada and thrilled to work alongside 1st Vice President Tracey Penelope Tekahentahkhwa Deer, the Elected Officers and the entire National Executive Board and Staff. Thank you DGC Members across Canada for this vote of confidence and we hope to work hard on your behalf and with the other phenomenal District Councils.
I also look forward to working with all of Canada’s Guilds, Unions and Stakeholders in the Audio Visual Industry, and strengthening our relationships and partnerships across this country and abroad. SEE MORE

Meanwhile in Canada, Director’s Guild of Canada just elected a Japanese Canadian Director as President, and Mohawk Indigenous Female Director as Vice-President.
