Introduction This 2018 edition of Associations Canada published by Grey House Publishing Canada includes over 20,000 associations, both those that are headquartered in Canada, as well as those headquartered elsewhere with branches in Canada. The Canadian associations are followed by a separate section of Foreign Associations that are of a particular interest to Canadians. Content Associations Canada has been a valued reference tool for over three decades, providing the most comprehensive picture of Canada’s non-profit sector. This 2018 Grey House Canada edition is no exception. The Canadian organizations and international groups in this edition represent industry, commercial and professional associations, registered charities, and special and common interest organizations.

This 39th annual edition includes updates or verification of all major associations, as well as all meetings and conferences. Included are over 12,000 awards and publications, and close to 35,000 executive contacts. Each listing presents a detailed association profile, including budget, founding date, scope of activity, licensing body, sources of funding, executive information, full address and complete contact information.

Eight indexes offer a variety of ways to search not only for specific associations, but also for specific categories of associations. In addition to association listings, you’ll find several valuable articles following this Introduction, including: • Associations, with historical background, types and organization information. • Protect Your Organization From Bad Employees • One Step at a Time • The Power of “Old School” Service Arrangement Accessing the factual information contained in the more than 2,000 pages of Associations Canada is facilitated by the following organization: • Location of Indexes: The Subject Index in the front of the book is designed to help users quickly find a listing, or group of listings, by subject.

The remaining seven indexes are in alphabetical order in the back of the book: Acronyms; Budget; Conferences & Conventions; Executive Name; Geographic; Mailing List; and Registered Charitable Organizations. • Arrangement of Data: Each profile has boldfaced category headers to help users quickly identify categories of information: Previous Name; Overview; Chief Officers; Finances; Staff; Membership; Activities; Publications; and Mission.

Available in print, by subscription, and online via Grey House Publishing Canada at www.greyhouse.ca, Associations Canada is widely used as a valuable resource of prospects for sales and marketing executives, tourism and convention officials, researchers, government officials—anyone who wants to locate non-profit interest groups and trade associations. To facilitate its use throughout Canada, a significant number of listings appear in French. Some elements, such as select front matter material is offered in both French and English.

We acknowledge the valuable contribution of those individuals and organizations who have responded to our information gathering process throughout the year; your help and timely responses to our questionnaires is greatly appreciated.
