Celebrating 40 Years
Welcome to our very special edition of MSTA CANADA’s annual Compendium of Canadian Mining Suppliers!
As Managing Director for the Mining Suppliers Trade Association Canada (MSTA CANADA), I am very proud to present this special edition of our Compendium. With this publication, we are celebrating two major milestones for our association. Firstly, the association marks its 40th anniversary serving the mining supply and services (MSS) sector. Secondly, we celebrate the 25th edition of the Compendium of Canadian Mining Suppliers, an industry-recognized publication showcasing great Canadian companies providing world-class products and services to the mining industry around the world.
In this special issue, we take a walk down memory lane, starting with the great story of how we got off the ground and evolved and grew into a national organization that is now known as the Mining Suppliers Trade Association Canada or MSTA CANADA. We also hear the stories from our dedicated members who were there at the beginning and who continue to support and benefit the association.
I want to thank The Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade for her letter recognizing this important occasion. Finally, I want to give my heartfelt thanks to all of you — the members we have had the great pleasure of working with; the boards of directors who have served us over the years; the passionately dedicated staff, both past and present; and the partners we have worked with over the years and decades.
It is only with your support that we have achieved this incredible milestone.
