ASSITEJ Canada is a bilingual organization that operates in both French and English. The organization is dedicated to the celebration of excellence in the performing arts for young audiences and to the sharing of information between its members across the country. ASSITEJ Canada also acts as a liaison to the international ASSITEJ organization allowing practitioners and presenters across Canada to join in on an international conversation.
ASSITEJ Canada will conduct its affairs to reflect and respect the ASSITEJ International constitution. All decisions, actions and statements shall be initiated by the membership and will not be driven by any one political view or cultural identity. ASSITEJ Canada embraces cultural diversity and as such, is accessible to all Canadians.
In order to reflect Canada’s regional diversity and to facilitate communication, ASSITEJ Canada is comprised of six regional centres. Each centre is responsible for gathering information amongst its members and sending one representative to ASSITEJ Canada’s annual assembly.
The centres are as follows:
Northern Centre: Yukon, N.W.T., Nunavut
Western Centre: BC, Alberta
Central Centre: Saskatchewan, Manitoba
Eastern Centre: N.B., N.S., P.E.I., Newfoundland and Labrador
