DMTAC recognizes the sovereign land on which we live and dance together. This land has been the site of human activity for thousands of years and is still home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island. ​Our operating base, currently located in Tkaronto, is on the unceded, unsurrendered territory of the Wendat, the Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, and the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.

DMTAC’s Statement on Racism and Discrimination


The Dance Movement Therapy Association in Canada strongly condemns racism, police violence, colonial violence, and forms of discrimination based on race, sex, gender, age or ability. Stopping racism and systemic discrimination takes our collective movement and commitment to sustained action.


We stand in solidarity with all those who seek to create a free, fair and truly inclusive society, here in Canada and around the world. We will not be silent in the face of injustice, bigotry or racialized violence. 


As an association of DMT’s, we believe movement is at its most powerful when it includes and connects people. We will continue to support, promote and celebrate the work of Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) in our field and in emotional wellness professions. We will advocate for, listen to and fight for injustice, equality, inclusion , and real change in our society.
