North American and Canadian Mechanical Contractors Associations Sign Memorandum of Understanding

May 27, 2022

The Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA) and the Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada (MCAC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), confirming the long-standing partnership and collaboration between the two associations.

“We feel extremely fortunate to count MCAA as one of our strongest allies and partners,” said Wayne Davidson, President & Chair of the Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada. “We share many of the same issues and concerns as MCAA and have always appreciated the opportunity to meet and discuss with our American counterparts on these topics. This MOU solidifies a spirit of cooperation and collaboration between our two organizations.”

“The MCAA is thankful for the many years of partnership with the MCA of Canada,” said Armand Kilijian, Immediate Past President of the Mechanical Contractors Association of America. “We appreciate the open dialogue and collective brainpower as we discuss shared challenges to advance the mechanical industry together.”

In addition to the promotion of the mechanical contracting sector, the MOU also sets out guidelines on the sharing of educational resources, industry best practices, as well as attendance at MCAA and MCAC events.

MCAA and MCAC will continue their involvement in the International Alliance of Mechanical Contractor Associations (IAMCA), an international group which meets annually to discuss common issues of concern for mechanical contractors in North America, Great Britain, and Australia.
