Each organization will continue to operate independently and maintain their own membership roster, however, through this collaborative relationship, members from each organization will have access to membership benefits in the other association and vice versa. They will share common industri initiatives such as advocacy, events and trade missions.

This collaboration will strengthen representation to customers and government in the Canadian auto sector and provide more effective support for member companies of each organization.

"APMA welcomes the opportunity to work with CAMM and its members as we seek to strengthen the voice of the automotive supplier representation in industry, to our collective customers, and in government advocacy," says Flavio Volpe, APMA's president.

CAMM is very pleased with the opportunity to work with APMA and its members," adds Diane Deslippe, CAMM's executive director. "This collaborative working relationships will help to strengthen our industry both locally and globally.  We look forward to a strong productive year".
