Although music therapy is gaining recognition both internationally and here in Canada, it is still seldom funded by government programs. This makes our goal of making music therapy more accessible and affordable critically important.
Since 1993, we have helped fund more than 400 music therapy programs across Canada. Our funding supports the growth and availability of music therapy in four ways.
- Clinical programs: to bring music therapy to more people in more communities across the country.
- Research programs: to explore and scientifically establish the impact and effectiveness of music therapy.
- Toronto Music Therapy Centre: an accessible, affordable centre for long-term, ongoing music therapy in the community. With your support, we’d like to open more centres in more locations.
- Scholarships and fellowships: to support those pursuing academic research of music therapy and careers in the field.
