3.13. Fellows of the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada

Founded in 1956

"In 1956 a group of dedicated designers met in Toronto to form the Typographic Designers of Canada. In time, and concurrent with the development of the profession and the growth of professional practice in Canada, the need for a truly national organization of Graphic Designers was felt by practitioners in major centres across the country. Thanks to the efforts of a number of dedicated designers and design educators, negotiations between members of the original society, the federal government and designers from every region of the country culminated in the granting of a Federal Charter in 1976, and the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada was born.
