One could feel the vibe and excitement in the air at WinDoor 2017. From a Fenestration Canada perspective, we can honestly say that it was a resounding success. The atmosphere on the show floor was positive and exhibitors on the whole were happy with the traffic. Many thanks to the WinDoor Committee for working diligently with Zzeem to deliver an event that surpassed our expectations!
The best place to start this newsletter would be the new Green Ontario rebate program.

Its become something of a tradition! Rather than call it a simple, boring Annual General Meeting, we’ve tried to spice it up a bit and called it the Holiday Reception AND AGM.  Fenestration Manitoba members have an opportunity to mix and mill with fellow industry leaders at a relatively informal event while beginning to close off another eventful year.  And, inevitably and predictably, the Clay Oven does a very fine job in accommodating and serving lots of excellent East Indian food!
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.
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.

The rain held off long enough for the 2017 Fenestration Manitoba Golf Tournament held on Sept. 19.

Fenestration Canada’s trip to Halifax May 30 through June 2 generated significant excitement and interest for the industry, attracting about 170 delegates from across the country to the Westin Nova Scotian on the harbourfront.
I am honoured and pleased to serve as president of Fenestration Canada for the upcoming year. Change is in the air both locally, regionally and federally and we know the next few years will be very challenging for the fenestration industry. Fenestration Canada is committed to closely monitoring potential changes that will impact our members.
