Welcome to the CBC Radio Doc Maker's Portal
CBC Doc Makers is a community of CBC employees, freelancers and aspiring audio producers to connect, create and learn.
We've been around since 2014, and were first known as The Doc Project.
The Doc Project launched as a series of informal 'lunch and learns' at the Toronto Broadcast Centre, and an opportunity for aspiring doc makers to pair with mentors and hone their skills.
Since then, over 130 CBC producers and freelancers have participated in our training Programs, producing nearly 100 documentaries. Their work has aired on dozens of national and local CBC Radio programs, and have several have worn international awards.
Our lunch and learn sessions have developed to a robust library of online resources that have been shared and used in journalism classrooms and CBC newsrooms across the country.
Eventually, The Doc Project became its own CBC Radio One program, featuring great documentaries from all corners of Canada.
Today, the CBC Doc Makers portal facilitates the following professional development opportunities:
- Documentary Mentorship Program, for emerging and intermediate audio producers
- Emerging Indigenous Doc Maker Program, for young/emerging Indigenous broadcasters.
- The Current's Advanced Doc Maker Program, designed for intermediate and experienced audio producers
