Fenestration Canada inducted 15 new members into its pantheon of Pioneers at the gala Main Event dinner on Nov. 29. A fun-filled room of about 600 window and door people welcomed the latest honourees, who will be permanently enshrined in the association's records as making invaluable contributions to the Canadian fenestration landscape. Pioneer inductions occur every three years.
Dec. 1, 2017 - Long-time Fenestration Canada director Kevin Pelley could hardly contain his excitement. "WinDoor's back!" he exclaimed outside the Embassy Grand Convention Centre in Brampton, Ont., the location of the Main Event gala dinner on Nov. 29.
Nov. 27, 2017 - WinDoor show organizers are alerting travellers to the WinDoor show – Nov. 28 - 30 at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ont. – of scheduled lane closures on the Gardiner Expressway in Toronto. Fortunately, with the show's move this year to Mississauga, only those travelling from downtown Toronto will be affected. Attendees from elsewhere in the province and arrivals at the airport will be unaffected.
The WinDoor Main Event is just a few weeks away! To prepare for the event, here are a few very important details:
Nov. 9, 2017 - WinDoor organizers have announced that Jersey Seasons, a Frankie Valli tribute band, will provide the entertainment for the Wednesday night Main Event on Nov. 29 at the Embassy Grand Convention Centre in Brampton, Ont. The Main Event is a new networking opportunity designed by Fenestration Canada to draw together show attendees and exhibitors in a social setting following the day’s activities at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ont.
Nov. 3, 2017 - WinDoor show organizers are reporting strong numbers ahead of WinDoor's return to the Toronto area, Nov. 29 - 30 at the International Centre in Mississauga, Ont. The national show for the Canadian window and door industry took place in Montreal for the first time last year, to great response, and is now seeing indicators trending up ahead of last years' pace.
In a modern era where knowledge is generally accepted as key, it would seem to make perfect sense to invest critical time and energy targeted in that direction. Events such as the Fenestration West 2017 industry conference 2017, a one day conference in the B.C. lower mainland on October 26, offered a unique opportunity to learn from some cutting-edge urban leaders an d enjoy some of the world’s most amazing sites such as Whistler. Cutting-edge urban leaders?  Just talk to Chris Higgins for a few minutes - looking like a bearded evangelist of environmentalism – and you come away a smattering of an understanding of the passion and commitment and connection to organizations such as C40.
Oct. 31, 2017 - The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) will be traveling to Orlando, Florida, for the AAMA 81st Annual Conference, to be held Feb. 19-22, 2018, at the Loews Portofino Bay at Universal Studios. While making travel arrangements, please note that this is the first conference AAMA is hosting with the association's new Monday through Thursday conference schedule, as opposed to the previous Sunday through Wednesday timeframe.
There was a heavy wind load morning–gusts of up to 90 km/h–when Fenestration Manitoba held the latest of its seminar series, entitled Glass, A World of Change, at the Norwood Hotel in Winnipeg on October 18th. Approximately 60 local industry representatives attended the breakfast seminar, featuring two American fenestration professionals talking about the present and future of glass, Raymond Roy, an Ohio-based regional technical advisor with Guardian Industries, and Jim Larsen, director of technology marketing with Cardinal Glass Industries in Minneapolis.
Oct. 26, 2017 - LinkedIn, the online professional networking tool, was a topic of two workshops at the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) 2017 National Fall Conference. AAMA Communications Coordinator, Meryl Williams, led a discussion about the social media platform called, "7 Actions You Can Take Today to Improve and Protect Your LinkedIn Profile."
Oct. 26, 2017 - The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) will host Michael Collins, managing director of Building Industry Advisors, LLC, as he leads a webinar about the current state of the window and door industry from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Eastern on Tues., Nov. 14.
Fenestration technology takes centre stage on the WinDoor 2017 show floor.
As we celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary, Fenestration Canada is also celebrating 50 years as an association and we’ve come a long way. Fenestration Canada has been changing over the past few years to adapt and remain relevant for our members. We just held our highly successful, well-attended AGM in Halifax this past June, which included lots of fresh new faces as well as the legendary Atlantic Canada hospitality.
Following up on the momentum from last year’s jolt of energy in Montreal, Fenestration Canada has doubled down on 2017 WinDoor with a move to a new venue and a massive expansion to the education program. After a year’s hiatus, the association is hoping Ontario manufacturers and dealers will be excited to turn out to take in all the changes.
