Member Listing

CAFABA members are invited to provide us with their services and company information, which will be listed on our database, so that those looking for an artist in a specific region can find the service they are seeking. This database is also available to Event Planners – giving them for the first time ever, a central location where they can access Canadian Professionals in our fields. Another huge benefit of this database, is that you can find other artists in your area to share work with when you need to, comforted in the knowledge that they share the same professional code.

Health and Safety

We require all our members to work to the highest possible standards of hygiene, and to be knowledgeable and compliant of the regional Health and Safety requirements for their craft. In the fullness of time, CAFABA aspires to work with Health Canada’s representatives across the country to introduce a standard set of rules we can all work to in unison. For the time being, we are faced with different requirements for different parts of the country. Coming soon: Our Resources pages will feature official provincial guidelines.

Liability Insurance

We expect all our members to hold Liability Insurance. CAFABA is able to offer its members an Exclusive Liability Insurance Package which has been designed specifically for us. **Application for this insurance will also require adherence to local health and safety rules and specifically use of ONLY skin safe products – outlawing use of Black Henna or Acrylic paints on the skin. * If you choose to take insurance with alternative insurers, you will need to provide proof of your insurance coverage.
