The organization was created in 2011 and has continued on due to the epic effort of some people. This page recognizes those efforts and will grow as the community identifies others for their unique and substantial contribution to the Instructional Design profession in Canada in the categories listed below.

Carolle Roy

Carolle Roy holds a Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Sociology from Université de Montréal, a graduate diploma in information technology and learning environments from TÉLUQ (French-language distance education university) and a PhD in university teaching and the digital environment from UQAM.

She founded the Canadian Association of Instructional Designers (ACCP-CAID) in 2011 and served as its president until 2021. Ms. Roy was an instructional designer at Université de Saint-Boniface (USB) from 2007 to 2020 and was previously the university’s webmaster from 1998 to 2007. She worked as an instructional technology specialist at the Université de Montréal’s Faculty of Medicine from 2020 to 2021.


Wendy Elliot

Wendy has worked in the background for many years managing and integrating all the technology used to maintain the association’s website and deliver its services. The requirement for members to continue their professional education on an annual basis and the regular offering of free workshops secured her commitment early. Her countless hours of volunteer work, including instructing three master classes, have enabled ACCP-CAID to continue operating.
