About TAPA
TAPA was originally formed in 1977 and officially incorporated in 1979. Then known
as the ‘Toronto Theatre Alliance’, the organization was much smaller, and has since
grown substantially. At the end of our last fiscal year, the membership consisted of
190 members. The large membership reflects the diversity of Toronto, and while that
diversity is our strength, it also challenges our focus and our effectiveness. To better understand the broad spectrum of needs to the various TAPA membership categories, TAPA has introduced and established a number of active committees that have member representation, and help us to build a solid foundation from which to launch new initiatives.
