Who We Are & What We Do

The Paperweight Collectors Association of Ontario works closely with the Paperweight Collectors Association, Inc. (PCA, Inc.) headquartered in the U.S.A. and other regional and international clubs. There are approximately 12 members of PCA Ontario and 600 members of the PCA, Inc. organization.

The Ontario club was founded in 1979 by a small group of glass paperweight enthusiasts led by the late Helen Carothers, the Founding President.

The club holds Saturday or Sunday afternoon meetings approximately three to four times a year. The meetings include guest speakers, videos on glass techniques and artists, visits to glass studios, opportunities to buy and sell weights, and other related educational and collecting activities. A newsletter is published twice a year.
