Coverage of dancers in case of injury or accident

Since January 2006, dancers receiving support under the Dancer Training Support Program are protected by the CNESST in case of an injury or accident that occurs during supervised training not governed by a work contract.

The terms and conditions of this agreement are set out under the Regulation respecting the implementation of the Agreement on the professional dance training program.

If you sustain a work accident during supervised training and you file a claim with the CNESST, please contact Virginie Desloges as soon as possible at 514 849-4003, extension 228.

Please make sure that you complete the Event Report attached to your file. Your application will be handled in strict confidentiality.

To know the procedure to follow in case of accident, consult our health and safety resources.
