About RGD Ontario

RGD Ontario was created by an Act (Bill Pr56) of the Ontario Legislature in
1996 to grant graphic designers who qualify the right to use the designation
Registered Graphic Designer (R.G.D.). RGD Ontario is the only graphic design
association in North America to have this kind of legislation. The R.G.D. and Registered Graphic Designer designations are signals of quality and competence to the profession, the public and the government.
