About Us

Glasfax was founded in 1967 during Canada's Centennial celebrations.  The driving force behind the early growth of the organization was Thomas B. King, Secretary of the Dominion Glass Company in Montreal, Quebec.  Today there are three chapters each with its own features and agenda based upon the four objectives of Glasfax:

  • District III with members in the Greater Toronto Area
  • District IV with a membership based in Southwestern Ontario
  • District X for members in any other location including the USA.

Membership is open to those who are interested in contributing to our objectives in some practical way.  A new member enjoys all the privileges, responsibilities and fun of being a Glasfax member!

Fiftieth Anniversary with a special mini-conference held in London, Ontario. Members from all three districts attend; of particular note was the participation of two Charter Members: Don Kennedy Jr. and Jackie Davis cutting the cake.
