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.

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.
