Published by Sarah Bradbury, December 05, 2014.

Interior Designers of Nova Scotia (IDNS), celebrated its 10th anniversary with practice legislation on Friday, November 7, 2014. In attendance to mark this momentous occasion were Susan Wiggins, IDC CEO, and Denis Chouinard, IDC President.

“This is a milestone event for the profession of interior design, not only locally, but also nationally and internationally,” says Susan. “It is our hope that this anniversary will pave the way towards a better understanding of the important role that interior designers play in protecting the health, safety and welfare of the public by granting legislative authority.”

Only individuals registered with IDNS are entitled to use the term “interior designer” and provide interior design services by virtue of the Interior Designers Act of Nova Scotia. Nova Scotia is the only Canadian province with such an Act.

“We are thrilled to be celebrating the hard work and talent of our members, and the government’s recognition of our role,” says association President, Dede Hiscock. “Celebrating 10 years with practice legislation means that the public can rest assured that when they hire an interior designer, that individual is held to the highest standards of a regulated profession.”

Friday’s celebration brought together individuals from Nova Scotia’s design, business, media, and real estate communities. The event took place at the Via Rail Train Station and featured a silent auction and wine tasting, among other activities.
