Membership and Events
For over thirty years, CANSCAIP has provided support, collegial companionship and information about the larger world of creative endeavor. We offer this through an informative quarterly newsletter, through a dynamic website with professional member pages, through local meetings (currently in Toronto, Montreal, Edmonton and Ottawa), and through seminars at our professional development conferences, including "Packaging Your Imagination" (Toronto), “Imagine a Story” (Montreal) and “Prairie Horizons” (Lumsden, Saskatchewan). Our performers have showcased their work in two group concerts, and our illustrators have mounted a highly successful travelling art show: The CANSCAIP Collection, original art from picture books, has crossed Canada from Halifax to Vancouver.
As well as offering support to our professional Members, we have always included our partners in reaching children: librarians, teachers, parents, emerging creators and publishers. Through an associate membership category called Friends, they can receive the newsletter, attend our meetings and access resources in our password-protected Friends section of the CANSCAIP website.
