Directory of Canadian Fabricare Associations

The Fabricare Industry in Canada is a vigorous collection of associations, separated by lots of geography. Each association has an important part to play in the area it serves. If you are not a member of the association which represents your area and interests, you are missing a vital link in the success of your business.

Geography almost defeated the Canadian Fabricare Association, but it was pulled back from the brink of extinction by a dedicated group of provincial leaders who have decided to sustain it out of their own pockets. If any one of them asks you for help or input, please keep this fact in mind.

We want to hear the latest from YOUR Association!

There has never been a better time to join an association, or a time when it is more important. It is imperative that individual operators and suppliers band together to have a collective voice in the decisions that will shape the industry for decades to come. If you are not already a member, find the most appropriate Association listed below and join it today. If you have already become a member, become an active participant. The strength of an association is the commitment of the individual members.
