About CAC

Who we are

The voice of Canada’s cement industry

The Cement Association of Canada (CAC) represents the Canadian cement industry–seven companies with clinker and cement manufacturing facilities. Together, we strive to maintain a sustainable industry as well as promote and enhance the economic, environmental and societal benefits of building with concrete–cement’s end product.

A founding member of the Concrete Council of Canada, the CAC advances the industry’s position as a proactive partner in addressing society’s sustainability and climate change challenges. We work with environmental groups, governments, and broader civil society to support the development of smart regulatory policy that allows a fair competitive playing field for our members. We advise on technical matters important to our industry and to sustainable construction, participating in relevant committees of the Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes and of the Canadian Standards Association. And we provide guidance on best practices related to concrete pavements.

Our members

The members of the Cement Association of Canada operate clinker and cement manufacturing facilities, granulating facilities and distribution, grinding facilities and cement terminals across the country. They provide a reliable domestic supply of cement required to build Canada’s communities and critical infrastructure. Signatories of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development Cement Sustainability Initiative (WBCSDCSI) through their parent corporations represented in more than 90 countries on five continents, our members are committed to the environmentally responsible manufacturing of cement and concrete products and to the quality of life of our communities.

Our concrete sector partners

Most Canadian cement companies are also involved in the production of ready-mixed concrete and various forms of concrete-based construction. They are active in associations that represent concrete producers in its many forms and that, like the CAC, are members of the Concrete Council of Canada. The CAC works in collaboration with its partners in the concrete sector to promote the contribution of concrete, concrete products and concrete systems to low carbon, sustainable communities.
