Fenestration Canada in consultation with you...
Initiated in Fall 2000, Fenestration Canada consulted with its member
companies to develop a strategic action plan reflecting and addressing
industry and association issues. Priority areas identified by the
Membership An organization is as strong as
its membership base. Fenestration Canada represents all aspects of the fenestration
industry, not only coast to coast but internationally as well. Membership
includes manufacturers, all component suppliers, laboratories, agencies
and industry consultants. Fenestration Canada provides a strong networking forum
for the fenestration industry. Membership is a priority for Fenestration Canada
and a concrete plan has been developed to recruit new members and
add new dimension to our voice.
Communication Fenestration Canada is committed to keeping
our members informed. Information gives competitive advantage. Fenestration Canada
members are regularly informed about changes to standards and legislation,
new technologies, ongoing research and new business opportunities
in the domestic and global marketplace. Regular bulletins, newsletters,
and the Fenestration Canada website enable Fenestration Canada members to access vital information
for their business through a variety of preferred communication
Standards and Legislation Receiving the highest
priority from our members, there was consensus that Fenestration Canada should
remain actively involved in the standards and legislation writing
and review process. Recognizing the importance of these activities,
Fenestration Canada hired Jeff Baker of WestLab as the Fenestration Canada Technical Consultant
to support its activities and members.
Harmonization This was also given high priority
and was one of the deciding factors in hiring a Technical Consultant.
Fenestration Canada will be proactively involved with CSA in the harmonization
efforts with AAMA / WDMA and NFRC.
Influence and Leadership Fenestration Canada is the only
national organization representing the fenestration industry in
Canada. Business, government and consumers look to Fenestration Canada as the
information source on our industry. Programs such as Sill to Sash
and identifying key individuals in government and consumer groups
are priorities for the Association.
Win-Door The foremost showcase for the fenestration
industry is owned by Fenestration Canada. Recognizing the importance of this key
and essential networking opportunity for all industry sectors, Fenestration Canada
is working closely with our event manager Shields and Associates
to ensure the continuity and success of North America's premier
Fenestration Canada, your strategic partner!
