OPCEA celebrated 30 years of membership directories

2019-04-07T21:13:39+00:00

.
First published for distribution at the 1988 WEAO/OPCEA conference and tradeshow, OPCEA’s Membership Guide was the idea of Larry Madden of C&M Environmental and current WEAO Treasurer. The first edition profiled OPCEA’s 60+ members and was a mere 24 largely black and white pages in size.

Since that time, the association has grown to over 170 members and the directory has followed suit.  The current edition is 84 full colour pages in size, and is “book bound” for added prestige and durability.

2018 marked the 30th edition of the OPCEA Membership Guide.

It provides the name, contact information, and equipment, products and services provided for each member company. This directory enables you to source vendors from among OPCEA members, by searching the manufacturer’s name or product trade names or trademark.  Copies are distributed to thousands of key environmental professionals across Ontario and at the annual WEAO/OPCEA conference and tradeshow. It is a most useful guide available for sourcing pollution control equipment and services for both municipal and industrial applications.

Increased EI premiums, new environmental levies, minimum wage hikes: announcements about new taxes and regulations became a common occurrence in 2017. But perhaps the most significant tax announcement of the year — maybe the most significant in decades — came in the dead of summer, when Finance Minister Bill Morneau introduced a series of proposals that would dramatically change the way small businesses in Canada are taxed.
