The first Co-ops in the north were formed in the 60s to market traditional industries such as arts and crafts production.
Today, Arctic Co-operatives Limited purchases art from Co-operatives and takes full responsibility for the wholesale and retail marketing of this art. Members are paid a fair price for their product and each piece is tagged to guarantee authenticity.
We work exclusively with Inuit and Dene artists to promote their art and distinctive culture to collectors around the world.
Canadian Arctic Producers was formed in 1965 to serve the arts and crafts production side of Co-op business. It is the world’s largest wholesale distributor of Inuit and Dene art. Proudly Aboriginal owned and controlled, Canadian Arctic Producers markets this unique art form that reflects the artists’ connection to the land and its animals, folklore and contemporary imagery. Clients include gallery owners and art dealers throughout the world.
