Message from the Association President

Spring into Summer

As I write this message, I am sitting in the airport waiting for my flight back to Winnipeg. Today was a bright and sunny day in Toronto and I just enjoyed another fantastic CAMA event, our annual golf tournament at the Royal Woodbine golf course. The event was well attended, and it was great to enjoy the company of so many of our industry peers in a relaxed and casual setting.

Bottles vs. Cans: Which is Better for Your Business?

In the competitive landscape of the vending industry, the choice between selling bottles and cans is a pivotal one. Soft drinks in aluminum cans have long been a symbol of refreshment and convenience, but traditional can vending equipment has been gradually on the decline. This is influenced by the suppliers involved, but also consumer changes in the Canadian marketplace. This article delves into the growing movement toward bottled formats and why it is important for your business.

Tech Corner:

The Rising Cost of Technology: Causes & Implications

The cost of technology has surged significantly in recent years, impacting consumers and businesses alike. Several factors contribute to this trend, from supply chain disruptions to advancements in machine complexity. Understanding these elements can help businesses better navigate the financial landscape and integrate these rising costs into their strategic plans.

Removing Language Barriers to Health & Safety Success

Look around. Does your workforce include new Canadians, temporary foreign workers or individuals for whom English is their second language?

You probably do or will be employing a newcomer sometime soon, as Canada’s 2024-2026 Immigration Levels Plan seeks to welcome 500,000 new residents annually in the years to come.

New hires, especially newcomers to the country, may bring with them a varied understanding of health and safety rights, responsibilities, and workplace hazards, thus increasing the need for thorough orientation and job training.
