CARFAC Ontario is the association of professional visual and media artists. Founded in 1968, CARFAC (Canadian Artists' Representation/le Front des artistes canadiens) has worked for 40 years on the legal and economic issues facing visual artists. We believe that artists, like professionals in other fields, should be paid for their work and share equitably in profits from their art practice. The work of CARFAC Ontario is to develop policies, publications and services that assist artists, galleries, curators, art patrons, and other stakeholders in creating an economic climate that benefits all visual artists.

Strengthening the Sector: Resources and Best Practices for the Visual, Media and Craft-Based Arts Sector

Strengthening the Sector: Resources and Best Practices for the Visual, Media and Craft-Based Arts Sector is a three-year project focused on researching and developing a range of resources and tools to support the visual, media and craft-based arts sectors. 

Please take a moment to fill out our Artists, Public Galleries, & Exhibitors survey! Research findings will be aggregated and published by CARFAC. The resulting tools will be available, free, on our website. Thank you for your support and contribution to a resilient arts sector in Ontario.
