CAFTCAD was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization May 2nd, 2008. We have established by-laws and a constitution, criteria, levels of membership and a structured election process. Our Executive Board is made up of all three sectors of our industry, providing a clear, non-partisan membership-driven vision of the Alliance’s mandate and goals.
Twelve years into our incorporation, CAFTCAD has expanded past Ontario’s borders with a large number of satellite members from various filmmaking centres across Canada, such as Vancouver, Calgary, Winnipeg, and Montreal. In 2019, we held our inaugural CAFTCAD Awards, which celebrates and awards the achievements of costume professionals across Canada in the film, television, commercial, and music video sectors. With this growing expansion, one day we intend to establish local chapters in every film centre in the country, providing a national organization for all Canadian costume professionals.
