The Federation of Canadian Artists has eleven regional FCA Chapters operating in Canada. They are listed below. These Chapters were formed by local FCA members to further the experience of art in their respective communities, and to share their art through shows, and other experiences. Some of the key benefits cited by Chapter Members are:
1) The camaraderie; being able to meet other FCA members and like minded people. 2) Improving your work, being able to take advantage of Workshops, Demo's and Critiques organized by the Chapter. 3) Being able to show in quality juried shows locally. 4) Have the advantage of being able to count two more shows per year towards your Signature status.
5) Strong regional networking.
Please note: In order to be a member in good standing with the FCA, members are required to pay the FCA head office membership fee and the respective Chapter membership fee. However, those are two different payments with two different recipients. The first payment is used for general organizing while the payment to the chapter is for local activities.
Chapters are formed by a collective of members of the National Federation of Canadian Artists. They are regional entities and have autonomy in how they govern their business. FCA members belonging to Chapters follow the policies, bylaws and artistic standards of the Federation of Canadian Artists. For more information on how Chapters operate or to form a new Chapter please read the Chapter Resource Manual or contact the Chapter Liaison.
