Our History

Our origin dates back to the 1920’s as a section of the Canadian
Manufacturers’ Association, designed to support vehicle
manufacturers and showcase their significant role to the
Government of Canada.
After WWII, there was a shift to protect the automotive parts industry and with it came
a need for a centralized voice that represented the sector. This was the foundation for
the Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association which was established in 1952.
