About Us

Who We Are

This site is the result of a small group of dedicated Professional Meat Cutter / Educators working together as the (CPMCA) Canadian Professional Meat Cutter’s Association, a not for profit group.

Our Association was originally formed in 1993 and over the years has developed and produced a training Manual for Schools and Industry that are used throughout Canada. Currently our training manual is undergoing a full review, edit and update to improve training delivery and reflect current industry practices. In addition we have raised funds via several provinces to promote our industry via Radio, transit posters, other media and also produce this website as a focal point for information sharing, job posting site for employers and a resume posting site for prospective employees, wishing to advertise their newly acquired post secondary skills.

Philosophy Statement

The CPMCA was developed by member participation, through a continuous interchange of ideas and information, providing various educational mediums. These educational mediums are offered and available for use and assistance to those members in the meat industry, who have looked to meet the challenges of today’s global market.

In addition, the CPMCA is active, networking with other national and regional associations such as Agriculture Canada, local producing, processing, marketing boards and associations. This network system provides members with opportunity for professional dialogue and exchange of industries data.
