The Canadian Music Therapy Trust Fund (CMTTF) exists to create access to music therapy for Canadians who need it most.

We bring music therapy and music therapists to rural, urban and remote communities from coast-to-coast through innovative programs and research projects. These initiatives range from interventions for autism, Alzheimer’s, anxiety and depression, fine-motor skills development, pre- and post-natal care, and brain injury, to name only a few.

We accomplish this by awarding clinical and research grants, scholarships and fellowships to innovative accredited music therapists who are then empowered to use their talents and expertise to make music therapy accessible within our communities.

Together, we are transforming lives and building brighter futures. With your support, access to music therapy for all Canadians is possible!

La Fondation de musicothérapie du Canada (FMT) existe dans le but de créer un accès à la musicothérapie aux Canadiens qui en ont le plus besoin.

Au moyen de recherches et de programmes innovateurs, nous amenons la musicothérapie en régions urbaines, rurales et en régions éloignées, partout au Canada. Nos initiatives englobent des interventions auprès de personnes atteintes d’autisme, de la maladie d’Alzheimer, d’anxiété et de dépression, de troubles de développement moteur et de motricité fine, de traumatismes cérébraux, pour n’en nommer que quelques-uns.

Our music therapy work includes:

  • Pilot Projects

  • Academic & Field Research

  • Clinical Studies

  • Customized Projects

Hologic Enables Healthier Lives

The work that Music Therapists do within the spectrum of women’s health made it easy for this organization to decide to donate to the CMTTF. Music therapy and the work of Hologic align, in terms of supporting women coping with a diagnosis of cancer and/or needing support physically and emotionally due to any number of healthcare challenges.

One of Hologic’s philanthropic goals is to support organizations that provide life-changing care for women – An innovative medical technology company primarily focused on improving women’s health and well-being, Hologic enables healthier lives everywhere, every day, with clinical superiority that delivers life-changing diagnostic, detection, surgical and medical aesthetic products rooted in science and driven by technology. Thank you Hologic, for your support.

Fred Penner and the benefits of Music Therapy

Wise words from a music legend on music therapy and a glimpse of the March 11 benefit concert.

I have seen the impact that music therapy has on people who are often in the battle of their lives. Music transcends medicine; it transcends the confusion and frustration that patients can be experiencing when suffering from diseases; and it can bring joy, inspiration and reprieve unlike any other help out there.

– Chantal Kreviazuk
