Canada's Got Talent - FAQ
Anyone at any age is welcome to apply. If you are under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian must consent to your application.

We advise that you apply sooner rather than later.  You want to ensure enough time to complete subsequent rounds of casting.  The team will be assessing applications as they are received.  Interviews with select talent will begin as soon as mid-June, 2021.

You need to be a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident to apply for Canada’s Got Talent.

You can only apply once.  All subsequent applications by the same individual or act will not be considered.


However, you are welcome to apply as an individual as well as a part of an act.

Due to the large number of applications for Canada’s Got Talent, we are unable to contact each applicant.  We will only contact those candidates who are selected to move forward in the casting process.

We STRONGLY advise that you complete the application on a laptop or desktop computer.

We are accepting audition videos older than 2-months, as we understand that it has been challenging to film with large groups with current restrictions.


When you submit your online audition, only ONE member should register on behalf of the group. This is because your group only needs one Application in our system.

Keep your eyes on social @CanGotTalent or the website for all casting announcements including the deadline.  We strongly urge you to apply sooner rather than later.

You will receive a confirmation email from the team confirming that your application has been received.  Make sure that you check your SPAM folder.

Possibly, however, if you move forward in the process you cannot add any members or switch out any members of your group without approval from the Producers first.

If you are a singer, please pick a song that shows off your voice. You can sing either a cappella or to an instrumental backing track. Ideally, we would like to hear you sing live in your performance video.


All other acts can have a backing track to their performance. Please keep in mind, if you are speaking while showcasing your talent, we must clearly hear you.

Yes, you can say you have applied, however, you CANNOT post or share your audition videos that you submitted on your application with anyone. Do not share on social media networking sites, emails, news outlets, general public or with friends and family. This could lead to being disqualified from being considered for Canada’s Got Talent.

You are not allowed to talk about where you are in the casting process or if you are potentially being selected for the show. This includes talking to or providing photos, clips or quotes to any media or press outlet (including traditional newspapers, radio, magazines or television or online publications). This restriction applies even if the media approaches you. You are also not allowed to discuss potentially being selected for or participating in the show with the general public. In addition, you may NOT post anything on your social media networking sites (i.e. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc.) email, or otherwise disclose anything about your potential selection and/or participation on the show, regardless of medium (i.e, whether in person, via online posts, etc.) We take breaches of confidentiality very seriously, and a confidentiality breach could lead to elimination of or disqualification from Canada’s Got Talent.

No. All applications are free. You just need an internet connection and a device with a camera and microphone to record your application videos.

Judges for Canada’s Got Talent will NOT be reviewing your application. The Casting Team will be reviewing applications as they come in.

ALL Minors MUST have ONE parent or legal guardian consent to the application and audition process.
