The Canadian Association of Fine Arts Deans (CAFAD) is a nationwide organization of post-secondary Fine Arts faculties, institutions and other academic units. Its members meet at an annual general meeting, usually held in the fall. CAFAD members are kept informed by monthly cross-country member meetings to discuss ongoing issues. The membership is by institution, and the annual fee is $350.00.
CAFAD has regularly contributed a member-at-large to the Board of the International Council of Fine Arts Deans, ICFAD, and has sent representatives to the bi-annual meetings of ELIA, the European League of Institutes of the Arts. A significant free benefit of membership is the prompt circulation of positions available information by email to the members as well as on this website.
