The Social Circus Foundation is proud to take part in Cirkaskina. Thank you to Cirque Hors Piste for organizing and including us.

The national component of CHP, Cirkaskina, was born following the first national social circus meeting which brought together 150 youth from 17 Canadian communities in Montreal in January 2020. Cirkaskina, meaning “all together” in the Atikamekw indigenous language, gathers partner organizations and marginalized youth from across Canada.

Social Circus Foundation has participated in three Cirkaskina events. Montreal, Virtual, and St John’s
