    Peter Grimley

    Fellow, ARIDO | Owner, Grimley & Associates

    Peter Grimley arrived in Canada in 1972 with significant experience in the retail and hospitality design sectors, with a later focus in the corporate/commercial sector. Following a move back to Canada from the U.K., he established, with two other founding partners, what would become one of Toronto’s most prominent interior design firms.

    Peter’s unwavering dedication to the profession of interior design began after ARIDO was granted “Registration Act,” legislation in 1984 and later “Titles Act” in 1999. Since then, his involvement continued by serving on various Association committees, including as co-chair of the Ethics Committee and the Legislative Review Committee with fellow honouree, Lynn McGregor. Peter was named an ARIDO Fellow in 2000, was president of ARIDO in 2007, and of the Interior Designers of Canada Foundation for many years. Today, Peter works towards the ultimate goal of practice act legislation for the profession.
