FGIA and AVFQ Finalize Collaboration Agreement

The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) has partnered with l' Association de vitrerie et fenestration du Quebec (AVFQ) to develop mutual synergies that will enable both organizations to best support their respective members. The collaboration was formalized in December 2020 and will enhance the reach and visibility of both organizations while ensuring efficiencies in monitoring codes and regulatory affairs in Canada. The groups agreed to collaborate by sharing information and offering reciprocal benefits and services to members in the areas of education, advocacy, technical standards, research, and product certification. The agreement offers AVFQ members discounted rates to attend FGIA conferences held in Canada as well as virtual conferences. FGIA members may also attend AVFQ's ‘Annual Conference’ at the member discounted rate. Additionally, a small task group is being created to explore the possibility for AVFQ to use FGIA education content and adapt it to its audience as needed. AVFQ will also be invited to support FGIA research projects conducted with the objective of constantly improving the quality of products provided by the industry.
