OPCA at 25 OPCA CELEBRATING 25 YEARS OF INDUSTRY EXCELLENCE By Michelle Rae Executive Director 2019 has been a milestone year for the OPCA We reached our 25th year of incorp oration and this past March our members joined us in Toronto for our annual conference to help celebrate this anniversary Our three day event was held in conjunction with Ensemble IQ s Convenience U CARWACS Show Canada s largest petroleum trade show Looking back at the history of the OPCA it was a challenging time for the industry and an even more challenging time for petroleum contractors to come together as not everyone agreed upon what was best for the industry But many persevered and in 1993 a small group of contractors laid the groundwork to not only come together as a unified voice for the petroleum industry but to develop a standard training program In 1994 they created a registered association The OPCA was founded in 1994 by a group of contractors to not only come together as a unified group but to develop a standard training program for work on petroleum systems Many are still involved to this day because they believe in the OPCA s core value Protecting the Integrity of our Trade The organization continues to represent the members says OPCA founding president Gord Thompson Even in places where some of us don t get involved we still must consider what the other members might be interested in and what they re concerned about and try to act on their behalf The OPCA has persisted for 25 years by identifying areas or gaps in the industry where improvements are needed and developing programs for training and certification a petroleum specific safety program and best practices for our industry The OPCA is supported by more than 130 member companies comprising largely of petroleum contractors and service companies as well as a number of petroleum equipment manufacturers and distributors Eighty five percent of our members are contractors representing thousands of employees across our Central Eastern Northern Western and Metro Toronto regions of Ontario While we have seen the effect of merging and retiring companies within the OPCA membership JUNE 2019 CANADIAN PETROLEUM CONTRACTOR 9
