Canadian Animation Directory

The Canadian Animation Directory is an accurate and comprehensive guide to the Canadian Animation industry. Covering a broad spectrum of Canada’s animation scene, it highlights existing and emerging production companies, funding agencies, schools and post-production services.

Researched and published by the OIAF team, the directory is an excellent resource for animation professionals, students, independent artists, organizations, and industry leaders.
