Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

We are listening.

We are learning.

We are taking action.

 

The National Ballet of Canada recognizes the historical and present inequities of our artform. Through thoughtful and meaningful action, we strive for greater diversity, equity and inclusion in our work amongst our artists, volunteers, staff, partners, audiences and community. Our goal is to celebrate and reflect the inspiring diversity of Canada as we deliver artistic experiences that represent excellence.
