Welcome to Orchestras Canada, the national association for Canadian orchestras.
Orchestras Canada is a registered charity (charity number 119067775 RR0001) and a federally incorporated not-for-profit organization. We welcome your involvement!
Our Mission: Orchestras Canada helps orchestras achieve together what they cannot accomplish alone, serving Canadian orchestras in both official languages, through research, knowledge-sharing, convening, and advocacy.
Our Vision: Orchestras Canada ensures a vital future for Canadian orchestras: vibrant, valued, and resilient organizations that reflect and celebrate Canadian communities.
Our History: Orchestras Canada was created in 1997 as a result of the amalgamation of two organizations with proud and distinct histories – the Ontario Federation of Symphony Orchestras (established ca. 1953) and the Association of Canadian Orchestras (founded in 1972).
