TELUS Independent
Supporting Canadian feature documentary and limited series

Authentic. Impactful. Specific.

Launched in 2023

TELUS independent is a pilot program supporting documentary and limited series, based in Western Canada, accessible to all Canadians. Watch this space for program announcements.

A shared future

Creating meaningful solutions to social, economic and environmental challenges requires all of our voices, deep empathy, and new ways of thinking.

We commission documentaries that engage, entertain, and propel strategies for change in the following areas of impact:


Sustainability and food security

Youth leading global transformation

Health and well-being in complex environments

Emerging technologies and democracy of access

The stories we support are identified and driven by you.

Meaningful collaboration

We partner with Canadian production companies to pre-license programming for TELUS platforms.

Our evaluation criteria encompass strategies for ethical storytelling, Indigenous narrative sovereignty, narrative sovereignty for all traditionally underrepresented communities, and sustainable production practices.

More information about the future of this pilot program will be available in early summer 2024. Thank you for your patience and please stay tuned.

Projects in the works and coming soon
