As advised previously, CHHMA members voted during the Association’s Annual General Meeting on April 7th to approve a name change of the Association to the Canadian Home Products Trade Association (CHPTA) and its French translation L’Association Canadienne du Commerce des Produits de Maison (ACCPM).      

This rebranding of the Association has now commenced but will be phased in over several months and is being done as the Association looks to grow its membership by appealing to a larger audience with more focus on the “complete industry” within hardware and housewares products as well as other home-related product industries.

As per the past fifty-three years, the Association will continue to serve and represent manufacturers, brand owners and sales agents working within the Canadian home products industry, but will also look to offer value to other sectors of the industry including retailers, dealers, distributors, builders, suppliers, tradespeople and end-consumers.

The Association’s mission will be to provide value to members by increasing their growth and profitability, expanding their sales reach, accessing industry intelligence and supporting professional development.  

As you can see, the Association’s newsletter as well as website have now made the switch to CHPTA.  Staff emails will start next week with the new name so keep an eye out in your junk folders over the next few weeks and if you could, have your I.T. departments “whitelist” the “chpta.ca” domain.  

We look forward to continuing to offer value to members, both current and new, in the years to come and always appreciate feedback and ideas from companies on how we can do that.  

Please feel free to pass on your comments to CHPTA President Sam Moncada at smoncada@chpta.ca or 416-282-0022 ext.125.
