We are association of Canadian web creators advocating for each other and a better digital media world. We're proud to support and promote the needs and activities of independent, creator driven and audience focused web projects. We seek to inform stakeholders and build relationships to help create better frameworks for people to access a democratized digital media ecosystem.
