Resilience Fund

We have received enough applications to distribute all the money from the Resilience Fund.

We will be back with the results soon.

Thank you so much to all our partners and the Canadian government.

The CDA team was more than honoured to be able to financially support nearly 2000 dancers.



We prioritized those who the pandemic has hardest hit and those chronically marginalized : IBPOC, racialized people, 2SLGBTQIA+, deaf people, persons with disabilities, disabled folks, official minority language speakers, rural and underserved areas, and do so with an intersectional approach to best serve dancers deserving equity and access.

For more information, please contact us.
