The Federation of Canadian Artists was formed in 1940 as a support and advocacy group for Canadian Artists and presently has over 2000 members. Membership in the Federation is open to professional and aspiring artists. The local chapter began in 2000 and is comprised of 2 senior professional “Signature” (AFCA) members, 47 “Active” members (who have earned this status by presenting a body of work to the FCA for assessment); and 28 “Supporting” members (emerging artists and those interested in supporting the arts). Our chapter meets monthly and welcomes new members.
