Our mandate as an organization is to:

  • Promote a broader awareness and appreciation of the decorative arts in Canada
  • Provide an educational forum for the decorative arts through programming and publications

  • Inspire and promote excellence in the field of decorative arts

The Canadian Society of Decorative Arts/ Cercle canadien des arts décoratifs is a national non-profit organization (Registered Charitable Organization No. 0652438-22-13). Founded in 1980 with the generous support of the MacDonald Stewart Foundation, it is governed by an Executive Committee and Honorary Council.

CSDA/ CCAD is governed by a council of members elected from each province, with an appropriate structure of standing and special committees. There is a President, Vice-President, and a Secretariat. In addition to regular meetings on a national and provincial level, there is an Annual Meeting at which Society affairs, policy, and programmes are discussed by the membership.


"The decorative arts help us understand history"

"The decorative arts - are not only pleasing to look at, but tell us much about the people who owned and used them. The decorative arts help us understand the development of style and taste, and at the same time provide important insights into social and economic history."

- Alexandra McCurdy
Honorary Council Member and Ceramic Artist
