Please note: All information sessions are currently on hold due to COVID-19.

We will provide new dates when we are no longer mandated to be closed.

The Cosmetology Association has been active and legislated since 1962 and has seen many positive changes throughout the years. We encourage you, as a professional cosmetologist and member of the Association, to come out and meet your Executive Board members at one of the Association’s upcoming information sessions and attend the AGM. It is a privilege to be self-regulated and your voice matters.
See what is happening in 2020, ask questions, gain correct information and voice your concerns.
