Welcome to the Canadian regional page, representing all the provinces of Canada! I am your regional director Nicole Valentine Rimmer. Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or comments you have about the ISGB or the Canadian region, or if I can help you in any way.

On this webpage you will find a number of glass resources from our region. The first is official ISGB chapters and other unofficial groups. They are probably your single best resources. Next is a listing of bead events in the region. For those that want to learn new lamp working (and other glass) techniques, I have compiled a list of instructional facilities in the region. Last I have put together a list of primary lamp working suppliers in the region for those that want it now or like to see before you buy. I hope that this list will be beneficial and if you know of other regional resources or events please let me know via email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
