The TITC was founded by Emily Dix in October of 2018 with the goal of uniting Toronto's many independent theatre companies. The model is based on community volunteerism and support rather than membership fees in an attempt to make it accessible to all.

The TITC believes that we need to stop looking at other companies as competition and instead pool our skills and resources to help more artists create in an affordable and sustainable way. All those who run a company that has produced a minimum of one production in the past, with plans of producing a minimum of one production in the next year and welcome to apply.
