CanWEA, the Canadian Wind Energy Association, is the voice of Canada’s wind energy industry, actively promoting the responsible and sustainable growth of wind energy. A national non-profit association, CanWEA is Canada’s leading source of information on wind energy’s social, economic, health and environmental benefits for Canadian communities and provincial economies. Established in 1984, CanWEA represents the wind energy community — organizations and individuals who are directly involved in the development and application of wind energy technology, products and services.
Our members are Canada’s wind energy leaders. They are wind energy owners, operators, manufacturers, project developers, consultants, and service providers, and other organizations and individuals that support Canada’s wind energy industry.
Canada is a global leader in the responsible and sustainable development of wind energy, producing enough clean wind power to meet 20 per cent of Canada’s domestic electricity demand by 2025.
CanWEA leads the effort to ensure Canada fully realizes its abundant wind energy potential on behalf of its members – and for the benefit of all Canadians – to build a cleaner, stronger future. A dedicated and passionate team engages in this mission through advocacy, education, communication, partnerships and the promotion of industry best practices.
