Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA) is a national organization Founded in Kingston, Ontario in 1941 and now headquartered in Vancouver. The Federation of Canadian Artists was instrumental in formation of the Massey Commission in 1949 and the subsequent formation of the Canadian Council for the Arts. In the west, the FCA established the Painting in the Parks program in British Columbia in the 1950's, a program funded by the Canada Council and copied around the world. Notable past chairmen of the FCA in the BC region included Alan Edwards, B.C. Binning, Donald Jarvis, Gordon Smith and JAS McDonald. The FCA currently has nine chapters throughout BC and Alberta and a permanent gallery on Granville Island in Vancouver.
