Chapter List

The FCA has fourteen Chapters across BC, Alberta, and Ontario. They are listed below.



Chapters are formed by a collective of members of the Federation of Canadian Artists. They are  regional groups and have autonomy in how they govern their own operation, while following the policies, bylaws and artistic standards of the Federation of Canadian Artists. Chapters may organize their own local exhibitions and workshops. A local Chapter provides networking opportunities and support to fellow artists in your community.



For more information on how Chapters operate or to form a new Chapter if you don't have one in your area 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 be affiliated with as many Chapters as they wish or no Chapter at all. Every Chapter affiliate must be a member in good standing with the Federation. This means besides paying their chapter fees, Chapter affiliates are required to pay their annual membership fees to the Federation (contact the head office in Vancouver).

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