“Our vision has remained steadfast from the outset,” said Peter Kallai, president and CEO of the CPEIA. “And that is to be the magnet that draws the ecosystem of this emerging sector together. From global companies to Canada’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and public organizations, we work with our membership to accelerate innovation, drive end user adoption and establish Canada on the global stage. Only through a coordinated effort can we generate wealth and employment for the Canadian economy.”
The CPEIA membership is a mix of industrial companies, post-secondary institutions and public research organizations. They focus on applications in intelligent packaging, intelligent buildings, aerospace and defense, automotive and industrial applications, health and wellness, intelligent documents, and consumer electronics and wearables.
