Heather Robertson Corrigan, FIDEC Bio:

Located in Nova Scotia, Canada, Corrigan is founder, President, and principal designer for Robertson MacLean Design Limited (RMDL), a firm that has provided design consulting to thousands of public and private sector projects over the past 26 years. She is a founding member of the Association of Interior Designers of Nova Scotia (IDNS, 1973) and has served in all executive positions, including President. She also served as a Director of the Interior Designers of Canada (IDC) from 2000-05. Perhaps her most important contribution to the profession in Nova Scotia was her lobby effort over many years to make the Nova Scotia Interior Design Practice Act and Regulations a reality in 2003. To date, Nova Scotia is the only province in Canada to legislate public practice rights for interior designers. Corrigan serves as a member of the Nova Scotia Building Advisory Committee, representing the Interior Designers of Nova Scotia. The committee advises government on the National and Provincial building codes and regulations. Corrigan was part of the first graduating class (1975) at Ryerson to be awarded the degree Bachelor of Interior Design.
