Who is the DWSC?
Connections, Inclusivity and Support
The Doctor Who Society has been connecting with the convention community for the past 10 years. We aim to celebrate the love of British television Doctor Who while transforming this passion into supporting our local communities. Through experiences and connections, we hope to inspire individuals to appreciate the value of connectivity, inclusiveness and support networks.
ABOUT THE ÐWSC
The Doctor Who Society of Canada is a social network for Whovians of all ages. Our community's focus is on social interaction, intelligent exchange & commonality.
The Ðoctor Who Society of Canada (ÐWSC) grew out of the 2011 Toronto Fan Expo, which proved to have such a huge local & national concentration of enthusiastic Whovians that it sparked the formation of our social community on Facebook. The overall response to that Facebook group & calls for more/larger events inspired the founding of the ÐWSC.
WHAT ÐOES THE ÐWSC ÐO?
The ÐWSC is foremost a social network for Canadian Whovians, where anyone can enjoy meeting fellow Ðoctor Who fans & amongst other things, discuss the finer points of the program which has become a worldwide phenomenon.
The ÐWSC as a social group has held gatherings, which have included cosplay events, movie screenings, pub nights & social trips.
The ÐWSC is also focused on raising funds in support of Children's Hospitals through our displays at Fan & Comic Conventions.
WHERE ÐOES THE ÐWSC OPERATE?
Our Administrative Committee is based in the Greater Toronto, Ottawa, Kitchener/Waterloo, Guelph & Fredericton Areas.
Each Chapter is led by a Chapter Coordinator from within the community it serves and a Chapter Rep from within the ÐWSC Co-ordinating Committee. To suggest a Chapter in your area, email us with your idea!
