Welcome to the Sheet Metal Workers’ International Association Director of Canadian Affairs Message:
I would like to personally welcome you to the SMWIA Canadian website. We are a growing union with over 15,000 sheet metal and roofing members across Canada and over 150,000 skilled craft-persons throughout North America.
Sheet Metal Workers perform architectural sheet metal work, fabrication, installation, and service of heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems, shipbuilding, rail work and more. Sheet Metal Workers are unique in the construction industry as the only trade that designs, manufactures and installs our own products. These skilled craftspersons take ordinary types of flat metal and make them into specialized products for various duct and ventilation systems, as well as architectural and specialized metal fabrication.
Our Roofers are skilled tradespeople who install waterproof membrane on buildings that have either a flat or sloped deck. Roofers also include those persons who install shingles, valleys (metal or asphalt), ice and water shiled and corner pans.
This site has been designed to serve as a resource, for anyone with an interest in the sheet metal and roofing industry. We will add content continuously, and we provide links to other sites of special interest, as well as many of our individual locals.
I hope you enjoy your visit with us, and I hope you'll stop back often. If you have a comment or suggestion for us, please feel free to contact me. We'd love to hear from you.
Director of Canadian Affairs
