In the interest of public safety, the IAF’s offices are closed until future notice. Staff are continuing to work off-site supporting Inuit artists and their work.

During this unprecedented and challenging time, it is more important than ever to remain connected to each other. The IAF remains committed to making sure that artists have access to opportunities and bringing you inspiring artworks, artist profiles and untold stories.

Thank you for being a part of our community, we wish you health and comfort during this difficult time.

The Canadian federal government created the Igloo Tag Trademark in 1958 in order to protect Inuit visual art from mass-produced, fraudulent work. The trademark, most often applied to sculpture, is a safeguard for collectors and artists that only applied to works made by Inuit.

The Inuit Art Foundation accepted the rights to the trademark from the government in 2017. For the first time, the trademark is now led by Inuit, for Inuit.
