About AME Association (Atlantic) Inc.

Atlantic AME Association is one of five similar associations across Canada; the others being the Western, Ontario, Central and Pacific associations.

These associations represent regional interests, as well as, concerns of national importance. The Canadian Federation of Aircraft Maintenance Engineers Associations (CFAMEA) is a national body, which is supported and financed by all the regional associations and which represents the associations at the national level.

The association works with and is consulted by Transport Canada in the formulation of new rules and regulations to promote the viewpoint of the AME. We are represented on various committees and working groups involved with aircraft maintenance and licensing.

A separate committee under the auspices of the association runs an annual Conference. This workshop is a two-day event that features speakers on a variety of related topics, as well as, an industry trade show with over fifty booths from various companies, suppliers, manufacturers and other organizations. Attendance at the various sessions held during the conference may be counted toward the recurrent training requirements required by Transport Canada.

Attention Members, Delegates and Exhibitors

Due to the current government regulations and restrictions with reference to Covid and the pandemic, we, the Board of Directors of the AME Association and the ARAMC 2021 committee, have made the difficult decision to cancel our upcoming annual conference that was scheduled for April 21-23 at the Westin in Halifax, NS.  We did look at trying to do something virtual, but the cost does not make it viable.

For our members - We will still plan to hold our annual AGM, but it will be on a virtual Webex platform, date is April 22nd at 1830 ADT.  More details will follow.  We are also looking at holding a ½ day session on our Webex platform with a possible panel and some speakers.  We are just in the planning stages for this.  Info will go out to our members as we have more details.

Thank you for your interest in our conference and here’s hoping that we will be able to hold one next year.  Halifax, NS will be the probable location.
