The Proulx Global Education and Community Foundation is proud to support our community doing what we do best: Art Therapy! The Proulx Global Education and Community Foundation is a non profit society incorporated in November, 2016. At that time, it incorporated the school, CiiAT, under its wings.
The purpose of the foundation is threefold:
We focus on training qualified culturally-sensitive and responsive art therapists.
To provide similar and related services as determined by the membership
To provide individual and community development through visual and expressive arts

Art Therapy is carried out in a way that always recognizes participants’ dignity and worth. Trauma informed practice and psycho-social rehabilitation practices are weaved into the therapeutic art framework. Each participant receives effective and timely assistance with every effort to empower and promote their independence, self-determination and motivation. All aspects of the program support participants to develop wellness self-management tools.
