Canada’s cement industry
Concrete is the foundation upon which modern, resilient societies are built. The seven members of the Cement Association of Canada manufacture 100% of the cement produced in this country and provide a reliable, domestic supply of cement for the concrete required to build Canada’s communities and critical infrastructure. The CAC, its members and concrete sector partners are committed to innovation, leadership, transparency and collaboration to reduce our environmental footprint and provide solutions to society’s sustainability challenges.
Introduced in Canada in 2011 and referenced in the National Building Code under the name of Portland-limestone cement, lower carbon Contempra cement reduces CO2 emissions by 10%.
