Plant Engineering and Maintenance Association of Canada

PEMAC is a national not for profit association providing global leadership, education and certification in world class maintenance,

The next conferences will be held at the Sheraton on the Falls in Niagra Falls, Ontario. November 17 - 20, 2014.


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.

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.
