The inaugural meeting of a new Canadian Colour Association as a chapter of the AIC (Association Internationale de la Couleur) will be hosted at OCAD University in Toronto, June 1 from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.. This general meeting will discuss the establishment of the organization, membership, structure, mission statement and
will elect officers.

This is an open call to all artist/designers, scientists, academics, educators, students or other individuals who have an academic or professional interest in the subject of colour. Keynote speaker Jennifer A. Veitch, Ph.D. from the National Research Council will open the event with a talk entitled, "Contemporary Issues Concerning Colour
and Well-being".

In 1967, the AIC was established to provide a forum for experts to present the latest ideas and research findings and to focus on specific topics such as colour measurement, colour vision, colour order systems and colour in
environmental design. The objectives of the Association are:
• to encourage research in all aspects of colour
• to disseminate the knowledge gained from this research
• to promote application of this knowledge to the solution of problems in
the fields of science, art, design and industry on an international basis.
