These associations represent regional interests, as well as, concerns of national importance. The Canadian Federation of Aircratt Maintenance Engineers Associations (CFAMEA) is a national body, which is supported and financed by all the regional associations and which represents the associations at the national level.
The purpose of the association is to maintain and enhance the standards of professionalism of the AME and the aircraft maintenance industry as a whole and to protect the rights and privileges of the AME. The association works with and is consulted by Transport Canada in the formulation of new rules and regulations to promote the viewpoint of the AME. We are represented on various committees and working groups involved with aircraft maintenance and licensing.
A separate committee under the auspices of the association runs an annual Conference. This workshop is a two day event which features speakers on a variety of related topics, as well as, an industry tradeshow with over fifty booths from various companies, suppliers, manufacturers and other organizations. Attendance at the various sessions held during the conference may be counted toward the recurrent training requirements required by Transport Canada.
