About CAC

 We are the voice of Canada’s cement industry, representing five vertically integrated cement companies that provide a reliable local supply of cement to help build Canadian communities and critical infrastructure.

We are agents of change

Our mission is to be a transformational partner within the Canadian built environment ecosystem — one that influences, facilitates and advances the evolution of an indispensable material to net-zero.

Ultimately, we exist to help build thriving, sustainable and resilient communities for Canadians. To that end…

  • We collaborate with governments, academics, environmental groups, construction professionals and broader society, as well as industry stakeholders, to help foster sustainable change and growth.
  • We advocate for effective climate policy, green procurement and the acceleration of low-carbon technology and investments in the push for net-zero by 2050.
  • We advise on technical matters vital to our industry and sustainable construction through our work with the Canadian Commission on Building and Fire Codes, the Canadian Standards Association, and the Transportation Association of Canada.
  • And finally, we help promote a better understanding of the environmental, societal and economic benefits of building with concrete.
