Glen's professional career began at the age of 11 when he designed the Canadian Cancer Society's daffodil, used to this day. In 1986, he won the Royal Philatelic award for Canada's first full colour postage stamp, the "Gray Jay". He has also been the subject of several television specials including the award-winning documentaries, "Colour it Living" and "Paint it Wild". In 1974, Glen was elected to the Royal Canadian Academy Arts.
Glen Loates is the first Canadian artist to be represented at the White House in Washington, DC. In the Oval Office in 1982, President Ronald Regan accepted Glen's painting, "The Bald Eagle" on behalf of the people of the United States of America. Glen's works can also be found in the private collections of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh as well as that of the late Right Honourable Pierre Elliott Trudeau, former Prime Minister of Canada.
Glen's accomplishments include the publication of three major volumes of his work, The Art of Glen Loates (1977), Birds of North America (1979) and A Brush with Life (1984). He is also involved with numerous corporate promotions. Glen frequently works with conservation authorities and he devotes his time to scientific research.
