In 1972, the Canadian Society for Color in Industry, Science and Arts was formed, joining the AIC (Association International de Couleur/ International Colour Association) as a national member, until 1993. Canadian Alan Robertson was President of the AIC from 1990-93, and received the prestigious AIC Judd Award in 2007. The new Colour Research Society of Canada (CRSC; inaugurated June 1, 2011) seeks to re-establish this important alliance of colour researchers, reinstate Canada’s position in the AIC, and engage a new generation of colour experts and enthusiasts in a communicative network fostering new knowledge.
