Registration is now open for the fall workshop in Kananaskis, to be held November 1-3, 2019,. More info available at the following link:


You must be a CHDA member to register. CHDA MEMBERSHIP registration is available at the following link:



Kananaskis Village

Kananaskis Village


If you are a parent of a dancer 8 & under -and do not have a current security clearance- we encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible. Once you have registered you will receive a referral letter to bring with you to the Police Station and apply.  If you do not receive a referral letter within 48 hours of registering please let us know at this email.
Current experience shows at LEAST a 3 week turnaround time for application approval. It will cost $15 and will be reimbursed by CHDA with the receipt at the dance weekend.
This security clearance is a new Scotdance Canada regulation and without it, your dancers 8 & under will not be able to stay overnight without you.
If you have a security clearance with another organization (must be a valid Vulnerable Sector clearance) you will be able to use it, as long as you are able to submit a copy of it to scotdancecanadariskmanagement@gmail.com
Please note that if you have a security clearance that was obtained via ePIC (electronic Police Information Check online system) you will NOT be able to share your approval with Scotdance Canada as they are not registered with this system. The ePic system doesn’t allow you to download or save a copy to share via email.  If you have any questions about an existing clearance you can direct your inquiries to the PICU-Police Information Check Unit at 403-428-2052.
