Joining the FCA 

Joining is in two parts. In order to join the chapter it is first necessary to join the Federation of Canadian Artists whose offices are located in Vancouver.

The cost of an FCA membership is $65 per year (Supporting) or $95 per year(Active, AFCA or SFCA). This includes quarterly copies of the FCA magazine “Art Avenue” and the ability to enter juried shows through the Federation Gallery in Vancouver.

Artists Under 25

It is in the FCA's mission to help support and promote emerging artists build their careers, and we know that young aspiring artists have a particularity hard time, especially regarding the additional challenge of affordability. So we would like to help ease that pressure by offering all Canadian visual artists under the age of 25 a complimentary membership with the Federation of Canadian Artists.   

"Free membership" applies to all membership levels - Supporting, Active, Associate (AFCA) and Senior (SFCA).  However, all regular standards and rules do apply.  Each "Under 25" member must go through the same jurying process that paying members undergo.  Jurying of work is required to advance to Active status and beyond, and "Under 25" members will be held to the same national-level quality standards that all of our members are held to.

To apply for a complimentary membership in the Central Okanagan Chapter, please email Kit Bell at kitbell@shaw.ca.
