Canadian Residency was an artist-in-residence program exclusively for Canadian visual artists in the United States. Each year, four or five Canadians were invited to experience living and making artwork in Detroit’s vibrant Eastern Market neighborhood. Please click on the 2015 Artists and 2014 Artists pages for more information about the participants.

Our programming was generously sponsored by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. We would like to thank the Consulate General of Canada, Friends of Modern and Contemporary Art, Art Gallery of Windsor, Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, Cranbrook Academy of Art, College for Creative Studies, University of Windsor and Wayne State University for all their support.

We were located at 1454 Gratiot Avenue, Detroit, Michigan, 48207, USA.
