Who We Are

Founded in 2009, the Canadian Textile Industry Association (CTIA) is a national non-profit Association dedicated to growing and promoting the Canadian textile industry.

Bringing together several manufacturers, convertors and end users of textile products, CTIA fosters collaboration, innovation and communication among its members, providing up-to-date, reliable information about issues of interest and concern to the industry.​

The CTIA promotes constructive dialogue with industry stakeholders and various levels of government on key topics related to procurement and local sourcing, free access to foreign markets and sustainable development.

Our efforts support members in strategic issues such as the application of Canadian content rules during calls for tenders and access to financial assistance programs to support businesses in terms of innovation, modernization and job creation.

Advocate the importance of the Canadian Textile Industry for Canada.

Enable our members to compete successfully in Canada and internationally, and to ensure that textile and value-added material industry is recognized by the public and by policy-makers as an innovative and important part of Canada’s economy.
