Chapter List

The FCA has twelve volunteer-run Chapters across BC and AB. They are listed below. Chapters are formed by a collective members of the Federation of Canadian Artists. They organize their own local exhibitions, Chapter meetings, and workshops. Your local Chapter provides networking opportunities and support to fellow artists in your community.



Chapters are formed by a collective of members of the Federation of Canadian Artists. They are  regional entities and have autonomy in how they govern their business, while following 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 Handbook.




Please follow this link if you are already part of a Chapter, and would like more information about available tools, Active Status jurying or a Chapter organized exhibition: Click here.



FCA members may participate in as many Chapters as they wish or no Chapter at all. Every Chapter participant must be a member in good standing of the national body of the FCA, located in Vancouver. This means besides paying their chapter dues, Chapter participants are required to pay their yearly membership fees to the Federation (contact the head office in Vancouver).

Please note: Those are two different payments with two different recipients. Chapter participation fees need to be paid directly to the respective Chapter, whereas the head office collects membership fees.
