What is AWMAC?

Architectural Woodwork Manufacturers Association of Canada (AWMAC) traces its roots to the 1920s millwork industry in Vancouver, British Columbia.  Evolving from regional associations, AWMAC has become a national non-profit professional association.  AWMAC's strength is the linkage between the national association, the regional AWMAC Chapters, and the manufacturer, supplier, educational and design professional members.

Today, AWMAC is the national voice of the Canadian architectural woodwork industry and is committed to:

  • partnering with other associations to define and improve architectural woodwork standards;
  • collaborating with educational institutions to enhance thier apprentice and technical programs to ensure that there will be a quality human resource for the architectural woodwork industry; and
  • communicating traditional, new and innovative architectural woodwork assembly methods and materials to governments, industry, design professionals and their associations.

 Architectural Woodwork Manufacturers Association of Canada (AWMAC)  is a national association of dedicated industry professionals sharing the common vision of continually  designing, engineering, manufacturing and installing the highest quality of architectural woodwork.

Today with over 400 members in 8 Chapters across Canada, AWMAC continues to be a visionary by providing programs and services that assist all members of the construction team.
