The Institute for Stained Glass in Canada is a not-for-profit educational society, registered in 2007 under the Societies Act of British Columbia.

An enormous range of traditional and contemporary styles — in churches, synagogues, mosques, court houses, libraries, hotels, hospitals, schools, legion halls, legislatures and college buildings — reveals Canada’s most widespread public art.

We are a small group of photographers and researchers based in Vancouver, with collaborators in the provinces of Québec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia. Our Board includes several well-known British Columbians. The Institute has no commercial interest, and depends for its ongoing development on support from heritage agencies, foundations and private sponsors. Please consider supporting our work on behalf of your province or community.
