The Canadian Association for Surface Finishing (CASF) is the principal surface finishing industry association in Canada established to keep suppliers, finishers, professional service providers and individuals connected, educated, and represented at all levels of government.
Our goal is to provide a single unified voice for the surface finishing industry in Canada – no other association exists to do so. CASF is a volunteer-based organization that relies on the participation and experience of finishers, suppliers, and decision-makers within the finishing industry to help members and our industry succeed.
In addition to our primary objectives, CASF also exists to:
- increase representation of surface finishing members across Canada
- increase industry promotion
- improve our public image
The CASF Mission
Acting as the Voice of the Industry
As the voice of our members, CASF plays an important advocacy role by working with all levels of government on issues related to our industry. One voice, for all surface finishers, suppliers and individuals will ensure a coordinated approach to ensuring the needs of our industry are being met.
Helping Members’ Businesses Succeed
This is achieved through value-added services including networking opportunities that promote our businesses to create new opportunities, marketing programs with a focus on digital media including a modern interactive website, educational forums, and training resources for our members.
Helping Our Industry Succeed
CASF takes a leadership role in helping everyone in surface finishing succeed. As a direct link to government, environmental agencies and industry we help members understand changes that affect our industry and fight for members rights.
