Today, Bill C-14, an amendment to the Weights and Measures Act, requiring mandatory inspections of measuring devices in 40 sectors including retail gasoline, retail food and electricity, passed third Reading in the Senate.

The Bill is now awaiting Royal Assent at which time it will be passed into law. Following Royal Assent, Measurement Canada will commence an extensive consultation with industry stakeholders to develop regulations.

CIPMA will be active in this period and will solicit input from members and industry experts.

Industry-leading networking events

Each year, we offer the entire fuel marketing industry two opportunities to find out what’s new, what’s coming, what CIPMA is doing about it, and how best to prepare for regulatory changes.

CIPMA is the proud host of the Canadian Fuel Marketing Conference. The next conference will be in Toronto April 10-12, 2017.  The CIPMA Golf Challenge is held in September.  Both are all-industry events open to members and non-members alike and offer marketers, suppliers and other stakeholders the chance to network.

The President and the Board of Directors hold an annual Eastern and Western Member’s education and networking reception and dinner. Invitations are sent to  CIPMA members and industry friends alike for a smaller scale networking event with more focus on the region.
