The Organization That Helps Your Business Grow:
40+ YEARS OF MSTA CANADA
The idea of began 40 years with a group of mining suppliers on the deck of a hotel swimming pool in Lima, Peru. The originating theme of “strength in numbers” has been a constant thread woven throughout the tapestry of the association’s history.
In 1989, the organization formally incorporated as a national association called the Canadian Association of Mining Equipment and Services for Export (CAMESE).
CAMESE prioritized international exposure. Canada Pavilions at global trade shows marked the beginning of the industry's global recognition.
Strategic growth in 1996 saw the addition of staff and a move to a larger office in Markham, thanks to multi-year government support.
Advocacy for the sector became a core mission, ensuring a collective voice for recognition and support from the government.
In 2017, a rebrand transformed CAMESE into the Mining Suppliers Trade Association Canada (MSTA CANADA), emphasizing inclusivity and trade.
MSTA Canada thrives, guiding the Mining Supply and Services sector toward innovation, sustainability, and global recognition. The journey from idea to a national force exemplifies resilience, vision, and commitment.
