The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) announces the opening of the AEM Canada office in Ottawa, Ontario, effective immediately.

The association opened the Ottawa office to be close to the Canadian Parliament and seat of Canada's federal government. "We recognize the added value to our members of having active representation in key international capitals. By increasing our industry's presence in Ottawa, our association is strengthening its public policy position in Canada," said AEM president Dennis Slater. "AEM Canada members will have increased government representation in addition to access to all the benefits of assoication membership."

AEM Canada's Ottawa office will focus primarily on government affairs while other association programs, such as statistics, technical and safety services, education and training programs, and workforce development will be coordinated out of AEM's Milwaukee, Wis., headquarters.
