Canadian Storytelling Groups


Welcome! Canadian Storytelling Groups is one of a set of pages concerning Canadian Storytelling and Storytellers, the others being:


Profile of Canadian Storytelling (page)

Canadian Storytellers (page)

Canadian Storytelling Ideas (page)

Canadian Storytelling Festivals (page)


If have not yet looked at the Profile, we suggest you start there to learn about the larger context of Canadian Storytelling and the intent and limitations of this project, then return to this page if that is your interest.


This list includes, or is intended to include organizations, guilds, circles, collectives, groups of all kinds (but not festivals), and companies of more than two tellers, Canada-wide, and by Province. Those with web sites are listed first, followed by those without. (It is possible that this preliminary list includes some companies of two tellers, or even one. These will eventually be moved to the Storytellers page.


Links on this page are not yet live. We will check and animate each one as soon as possible, and organize the lists properly.


This list duplicates a service provided by Storytellers of Canada~Conteurs du Canada, with the addition of any other groups that have come to our attention.
