Why Attend:
  • It is critical to meet key policymakers to establish lines of communication and educate them on the forging industry.
  • We need your assistance to make unfair trade and labor shortage visible and work with lawmakers on solutions.
  • EVERY SINGLE MEMBER VOICE MATTERS! Lobby Day is critical for establishing contact with lawmakers to get them to visit our plants and get more invested in our success and survival.

In partnership with FIA's Canadian lobby firm (Global Public Affairs), we will be organizing meetings with key members of the House of Commons, Senate and Ministries including defense. This partnership facilitates the forging industry to help increase its influence among Canadian lawmakers and key Ministries..
