From east to west: companies, theatres, venues, festivals

From the Atlantic to the Pacific, the main centres for professional francophone theatre in Canada are in New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and British-Columbia. In Quebec, Montreal alone has over 175 companies, not counting the 106 found in the regions. Some have their own theatres, but most young companies present their works in halls where they have either been invited or are renting. There are no fewer that 180 theatre presenters in Quebec, 97 of which are in the regions in halls that also feature music, dance, or variety shows. These lists only represent a small portion of Quebec’s theatrical activity. The Conseil québécois du théâtre (CQT) website provides a complete listing of the many theatre spaces, companies, and organizations. Some 15 professional francophone companies cover the rest of the country. Including the Théâtre français du Centre National des Arts (CNA) in Ottawa, eight companies reside in Ontario. There are two companies established in the Maritimes, and four in the Prairies or Western Canada. The Association des Théâtres Francophones du Canada (ATFC) website lists the details and programming of the main French-language theatres outside of Quebec. There are also some 20 festivals across Canada with various mandates: theatre for young people, puppetry, theatre from other countries, emerging or alternative theatre.
