Canadian Association for Theatre Research (CATR)

The Canadian Association for Theatre Research is a non-profit organization founded in 1976 to support and encourage research in theatre and performance studies in Canada, with a special interest in Canadian work. Our membership includes scholars, students, and theatre professionals from around the world who are leading developments in our field. CATR/ACRT membership is a great way to stay connected to Canada’s theatre community. Our members are eligible to participate in our yearly conference, vote in our annual executive elections and they also receive subscriptions to Theatre Research in Canada and our informative electronic newsletter (which includes tons of CFPs!).

Together, we can support CATR’s mission to strengthen the field and to nourish the communities with whom we work. We encourage you to give to the graduate student travel subsidy (see option below) and/or to our Indigenous Host Community Initiative (see option below). In addition to these avenues for giving, members and non-members alike can make a contribution to the Association through our 24/7 donation drive. Please visit and share the news of our CATR donation page with friends, colleagues, and departments.
