ADC Joins IATSE (Local ADC 659): On October 1, the members of the ADC voted to join the IATSE, as Local ADC 659. The merger will not change the ADC's work as a National Arts Service Organization advocating for and supporting designers across Canada. The ADC will establish a separate organization to manage contracts and agreements, separating this work from the NASO's responsibilities.

Our Payment Gateway is open so you can pay your 2020 Dues. Remember, the CRA has ruled that Membership Dues are now subject to provincial GST/HST, so we've updated the system to take that into account.

We are also encouraging all members and supporters who are not currently facing a financial hardship due to COVID-19 to consider making a donation to the ADC to help us in supporting and advocating for designers across the country. Visit us at:
