News From CADA

CADA offers a positive perspective

2012-07-25

EDITOR: Adrian Tinline's column in the last Upper Canadian certainly struck a chord for every CADA member. Mr. Tinline's concerns are without doubt the main factor itn the formation of The Canadian Antique Dealers Association back in 1967. CADA realized then that to insure that there was a segment of the market that sold only articles essentially unchanged and at least 100 years old would be the main thrust of the Association.

This qualification of 100 years guaranteed that a purchaser's investment would have the ability to appreciate in time. Coupled with that, is the assurance that the dealer has been vetted by a committee from the Association and that the dealer's knowledge is up to the high standard of the Association. These tenets of CADA have remained unchanged since its inception in 1967.

The Association was a coming together of many professional antique dealers in many different areas of expertise such as; china, silver, Candiana, English and Continental, etc. An applicant to CADA had to operate out of a retail premises and the stock had to be pre-1867, at least 100 years old in 1967. Prospective dealers had to be vetted, demonstrate expertise in their chosen area(s) of specialization, be dedicated to fair dealing and committed to educating the public about antiques. This has not changed and of course, we welcome dealers young and old to join.

As for Mr. Tinline's assertion that CADA has lost its chosen policy of “any dealer who subscribes and lives up to the code should be admitted”, well, that simply is untrue. CADA's charter is essentially the same as in 1967, the qualifications for admittance are still the sam. What has changed is the requirement that stock must be pre-1867; now it is 75% at least 100 years old with the remaining 25% of unusual interest. The original requirement that a dealer must have at least five years experience as a dealer has been changed to three. Finally, a dealer may now operate from home, an office or antique shows. We now offer special consideration to dealersthat specialize in Art Nouveau, Deco and Edwardian period antiques.

CADA's main objective is still our “code of ethics” (available on the CADA website). We welcome anyone who agrees to be bound by the “code” and allows his business to be scrutinized by a vetting committee of CADA members.

Today CADA is as relevant as it was in 1967. We welcome the next generation of great, knowledgeable dealers who will carry us forth into future generations.

GENTLEMEN: It's wonderful to have CADA weigh in, and bring their considerable weight to the discussion. Your steadfastness over four-and-one-half decades adds solidity to the antiques trade, to the benefit of both dealers and collectors. Your fair and measured thoughts above are sincerely appreciated, and we're pleased to be able to share them.

CADA Gets a New Online Look

2010-12-09

Toronto

It's all change at cadainfo.com as the Canadian Antique Dealers Association gets a new look. It's out with the old and in with the new as a general 'sprucing-up' of the web-site turned into a wholesale re-design.

'The old site was really starting to show its age and, compared with many dealers' sites, just was no longer up to scratch,' said John Ellin of J Taylor Antiques, who led the re-design effort.

Feel free to take a look around and let us know what you think at info@cadainfo.com..
