OUR HISTORY

The ABA is the only National Canadian association working for you – the Beauty Professional. For 85 years the Allied Beauty Association, a non profit membership organization; staffed with a few permanent employees supporting an elected board of directors along with a handful of task force groups and advisory councils comprised of our corporate and professional members; has been dedicated to supporting and educating Beauty Professionals across Canada through educational events, competitions and on-line/on-demand content.

OUR GOAL

The ABA’s ultimate goal of raising the standards of our professional beauty industry, comes from the support and participation of our members. Our mission is to act as one national voice representing all Canadian beauty professionals; defending the rights of the professional beauty industry and speaking on our members’ behalf on government regulatory changes affecting our industry. By becoming a member of the ABA, you will be adding your voice with other industry professionals, owners, distributors, manufacturers and schools who are committed to growing and improving our beautiful industry. Your ABA also conducts a professional market watch and regularly shares findings, insights, news and dates onto our social media platforms and website.
And Membership has its benefits!
