Plant Engineering and Maintenance Association of Canada

PEMAC is a national not for profit association providing global leadership, education and certification in asset management practices.


Over the last 20 years our focus has been on the development and growth of our signature Maintenance Management Professional Certificate program.  Dedicated to remaining leaders in education and certification we have just initiated a new certificate program in Asset Management aligned with ISO 5500x.

Recognized Professional Development

Our Maintenance Management Professional Education & Certification Program is offered by 14 teaching institutions across Canada. Completion of the program leads to the MMP professional designation. The new Asset Management certificate program leads to a CAMP professional designation.


MainTrain Conferences

PEMAC's national MainTrain Conference brings you the opportunity to learn and network from the experts in maintenance, reliability and asset management.


Learn from other Members

Local Chapters host lunch and dinner meetings with guest speakers. At Chapter Meetings you have the opportunity to talk with others who share your interests and challenges.



PEMAC provides you with several opportunities for getting to know others who are striving for excellence in their maintenance, reliability and asset management professional practice. Become a member today!

MainTrain Conferences

MainTrain is developed and produced by the Plant Engineering and Maintenance Association of Canada (PEMAC) - Canada's national not-for-profit association providing global leadership, education and certification in world-class maintenance, reliability and asset management practices. The next conferences will be held at the Radisson Vancouver Airport Hotel in Richmond, British Columbia from September 21 to 24, 2015.


Chapter Activities

Through participation at Chapter events you can meet people who do a similar job to you for another company or in another industry and get a fresh view point on challenges you are currently facing. In addition, if you are looking for work or looking for new team members, Chapter events are a great way to connect with people and companies with a view to professionalism.


Training Events

Education and training is also a great networking opportunity. Many participants in the Maintenance Management Professional Certifice program state that meeting and learning with other professionals was one of the key benefits of taking an MMP course.



PEMAC’s mission is to improve its member’s professionalism, safety, performance, and outside recognition, by providing specialized training and certification, undertaking research, providing forums for the exchange of information and acting as a public voice for its members and the profession.

Are you passionate about any of these areas? Become a member! There are many ways you can be involved:



The "Projects" page outlines projects associated with the 2009 - 2014 strategic plan for development of the Association. If you would like to become an active part of helping to realize our Vision and Mission, contact the Executive Director to find out how you can get involved.


Become a sponsor

Sponsoring PEMAC events and publications puts your name before a large audience of maintenance, reliability and asset management professionals while aiding us in our work of helping Canadian companies build world-class organizations.
