Casual Workshop Facilitator 

CANVAS Arts Action Programs 


CANVAS Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion 

At CANVAS we believe that it is vital to employ, engage, and empower people from a wide diversity of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. Without doing so, we would be unable to properly serve the communities we aim to reach, ensure fairness and equity across all aspects of this organization, or assist in dismantling the harmful effects of white supremacy which continue to thrive in Toronto and beyond. 


For these reasons, we strongly encourage applications from Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour, as well as 2SLGBTQ+ people, survivors of sexual violence, and people who reflect a range of ages, abilities, and religions.
