The Game Artisans of Canada is a collection of professional board game designers from all across Canada. Our goal is to elevate the game designs of our members so that they are publisher ready, and to build a recognized game design brand.

GAC believes that as our members get stronger, we get stronger. To that end, we gather collectively to test and give feedback for our members games, to help improve the quality of each game. Our primary focus is on game quality.

We were founded in 2007 and currently have over 30 members across our chapters in Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa, Toronto & Vancouver.
