Welcome to Square Circle

Square Circle is a non-profit organization using Social Circus arts to engage youth in underserved neighbourhoods in Toronto

Our Take on COVID-19

Since March 2020, due to the pandemic, we’ve converted our programs to be online. We’ll return to in-person activities only when public health authorities agree, as the safety and health of our participants and team members are our top priority.
