Welcome to the Society of Canadian Artists

Raising the profile of Canadian art by supporting Canadian artists   

Art is a voice. And in Canada – where our unique diversity of language, landscape and passion nurtures the creative spirit like few other places on earth – our artists comprise a chorus. Sometimes elegant, sometimes discordant. Through sculpture and paint, video and design software, cameras and conté crayons, the creative are saying something.

Our work is beautiful. It’s unsettling. It explores darkness. It illuminates. It tells of history, rooted in our land and experience. It imagines the future, fearsome or dazzling. In a country so creatively diverse, art is an anthem. The Society of Canadian Artists wants the world to know the tune.


With over 300 members, SCA represents art supporters and professional artists who work in a variety of styles and media. Acceptance as an Elected Member is through a process of adjudication which happens twice annually. Artists find support at all career stages, and benefits span the use of a respected designation to online promotion to participation in members-only exhibitions. The deadline for applications for SCA Elected membership is March 31, 2020.
