Canadian Freelance Guild – CFG


The Canadian Freelance Guild is a new form of unionism for freelance workers. We’re creating a network where freelance workers can gain access to work opportunities and professional development, and connect with colleagues to transform freelancing into a more collaborative, balanced, sustainable livelihood. Our founding members come from the former Professional Writers Association of Canada (PWAC) and the independent membership of the Freelance Branch of the Canadian Media Guild (CMG Freelance). CMG Freelance now solely represents people who perform freelance contracts for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. The CFG is affiliated with CWA-SCA Canada, Canada’s largest all-media union.
