On November 5, 2020, CADA became the first Canadian Association to join CINOA - The International Federation of Art & Antique Dealers. CINOA represents 32 of the worlds leading art and antiques dealers’ associations in 21 countries. These member associations account for over 5,000 of the world's most respected dealers who all share the principles of quality and integrity founded on a depth of specialist knowledge. A member of the public who buys from or sells to a member of CINOA has the confidence of knowing that the dealer subscribes to strict guidelines concerning the ethics of dealing and belongs to a recognized and respected national association that vets its members.

CINOA is committed to the broadening of knowledge within the world of art and antiques. The annual CINOA prize has supported the publication of many academic and art historical works and now promotes other fields of artistic endeavour such as exhibitions, conservation programmes and educational projects as well as rewarding museum curators and public figures who are judged to have most benefited the arts and the art market.

In an international market that is increasingly challenged by regulations, CINOA provides an international voice to promote the art market and encourage free trade in works of art. CINOA supports fair and open systems of cultural protection but believes that over regulation causes distortions and problems that can encourage illicit trading rather than preventing it.

The CINOA website gives access to full details of the federation, its member associations and its member dealers.
