RGD Ontario


96 Spadina Avenue Suite 210 Toronto, ON M5V 2J6

RGD Ontario was created by an Act of the Ontario Legislature in 1996 to grant graphic designers who qualify the right to use the designation Registered Graphic Designer (R.G.D.). The R.G.D. designation is a signal of quality and competence to the profession, the public and the government. Representing more than 3,000 graphic designers, managers, educators and students across Ontario, RGD provides a unified voice for the industry and works to promote recognition of graphic design for its contributions to commerce, culture and society. Each year RGD hosts the DesignThinkers and HeadStart Conferences, an annual exhibition known as Design at Work, a Student Awards program and more.
