GROUPE PVP DRAWS STRENGTH FROM THE FUSION OF ITS FOUR DEPARTMENTS:

Groupe PVP’s core business is the production of documentary films, animation and fiction, complemented by our expertise in digital media and information technology.

Since its creation, the company has evolved, adapted and diversified successfully to meet the needs of a constantly evolving market. Today, Groupe PVP has a firm foothold in Canada and internationally thanks to the talents of a team that extends to more than sixty colleagues sharing the same strong work ethic and quest for quality. Over the years, the production company has garnered an array of awards and accolades.
