In order to have a united representation and voice for the local area mold makers,
the Association was originally established in 1981 under the designation of Windsor
Association of Moldmakers. Due to increased membership interest, in 1992, we became
the Canadian Association of Moldmakers Inc. and now encompass a vast array of members
from mold makers, designers, manufacturers, supplier and service companies across
Canada and North America.
With our head office in Windsor, Ontario, and a Toronto Chapter along with affiliation with FEPCA in Quebec, we are able to have a stronger voice in numbers to assist us in dedicating our association to industry excellence. The Association
is governed by volunteering members serving as CAMM Board of Directors and Officers
(President, Vice President, and Treasurer) and employs one professional full time
staff member. The Board is made up of 6 Mold Makers, 3 Service Companies and 3 Supplier
Companies that is nominated through our general membership. All members are encouraged
to participate on the Board or at a Committee level.
CAMM addresses issues that affect Moldmaking companies in such matters as global
and legislative issues; new technology and education and training programs. We encourage
young people to choose mold making as a career through student awards and in-school
presentations. In addition, we try to establish ethics and guidelines for the industry
and circulate relative information to its members by various means; directories, newsletter,
web site, email, etc.
We encourage members to share ideas and experiences that will improve business and
the industry through annual conventions, conferences, seminars and dinner meetings.
We participate in international trade fairs, and other events in the industry, in
order to ensure our members remain abreast of advancing technology and current events.
The Canadian Association of Moldmakers, through the strength of our membership,
helps to ensure a healthy future for both large and small member companies, resulting
in quality molds being built in Canada.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, it is not a government agency, nor is it government funded. The Association
operates independently of all levels of government. Membership dues, event sponsorships,

How is the Association Organized?
As governed by the Association bylaws, our organization’s activities and initiatives
are guided by our membership. The Association has a board of directors, led by the
President, 10 committees and one professional staff as well as volunteers to support
those initiatives and administration functions.
The Association has many volunteers (board members, advisors) who generously volunteer
their time and resources on committees that address issues in an effort to make
our Association a viable and noticed voice for the mold industry. The Association
communicates with clarity and a respected depth of knowledge to all three levels
of government on issues of concern to our members.
Volunteers are Association members who:
* Want to assist the mold industry and remain the best in the world.
* Contribute to the development of the Association’s policy as well as the mold industry.

are addressed and become part of the Association’s voice on behalf of the industry.
