Recognizing Outstanding Achievements in Maintenance and Asset Management

PEMAC Asset Management Association of Canada celebrated the outstanding achievements of this year’s award recipients during the 2021 PEMAC Awards Celebration. The virtual celebration was hosted during the MainTrain Online conference held on September 28-29.

The PEMAC Annual awards program was created to encourage excellence in maintenance, reliability and asset management across industries and sectors, as professionals connect, learn and contribute to their organizations and the asset management community as a whole.

This year, PEMAC members were honored with eight awards from across two categories: Member awards and Excellence in Practice awards. There are three types of excellence in practice awards: the capstone awards, individual awards and team awards.  PEMAC awards recognize achievement of each type, for both maintenance management and asset management subject areas.

A full list of awards and recipients are shown below.
