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.

The Board of Directors of CARFAC Ontario is pleased to invite their fellow members to this year’s Annual General Meeting on the afternoon of Sunday, September 25. 

This year's AGM will coincide with our Draw More Income Panel. This panel discussion (which is FREE for members) following the AGM will focus on the range of revenue streams in which successful artists in today's artistic landscape draw their income. We hope to enable artists to learn from each other through shared stories of success, failure, and innovation.

The panel theme for this year is Draw More Income. Lawyer Vandana Taxali (business manager for artist Gary Taxali and artist Meera Sethi ( will discuss different strategies for artists looking for ways to make a living from their artwork beyond the traditional avenues of selling original pieces and exhibition fees.

We would like to thank CARFAC National and the Access Copyright Foundation for their support of this panel.

Registration is FREE for members and $10 for non-members, please register on Eventbrite.

* Please note that the AGM is only open to CARFAC Ontario Members in Good Standing.
