Founded in 1950, the Interior Designers Institute of British Columbia is the self-regulatory professional body for interior design practitioners in BC.
We register interior designers who meet an established standard of experience and competence and conduct their practice in accordance with a prescribed code of ethics. By identifying these individuals as Registered Interior Designers (R.I.D.), the public is assured of a recognized level of skill and experience when seeking the services of an interior designer.
We also strive to advance our profession through public and legal recognition, and providing services to our members including continuing education programs, seminars, networking, business referrals, an awards competition, and charitable and social events.
Our external goals are to benefit public health, safety, and welfare, contribute to the enhancement of the environment, and increase the perception, appreciation, and value of design in the community.
