Artists established CARFAC Ontario in 1968. As founding spokesperson Jack Chambers said "we need no other go between to get our message across, both creatively as it concerns our work and socially as it concerns our livelihood."

CARFAC Ontario maintains an office in Toronto to administrate programs, to publish and deliver resources and to coordinate special projects. It functions as a professional body for artists, working to empower creators in all visual media so they share equitably in any profits issuing from their work.

CARFAC Ontario's position is that artists, like professionals in other fields, should be paid for their creative output and services. We inform artists of their economic and legal rights as we educate consumers of art to fair dealings with artists. Through our information services, lobbying and consultations we work to improve the status of visual artists in our society.
