For the Public


Not everything you can learn about interior design comes from inside a classroom, textbook, project or test. If you want to get an insider look at the industry, learn about the top movers and shakers, start building your list of contacts, access job search tips and career postings and network with leaders in the industry - you have come to the right place.

Our student members are the future
of interior design in Canada.

It is the talent and passion of our student members that will propel our industry forward and earn our profession the recognition it deserves on a provincial, national and international scale. IDC wants to ensure that you are on the right path towards a successful career as a Registered interior designer.


As a student, you are currently enrolled in an interior design program recognized by one of nine provincial associations.
