Mining Supplier Trade Association Canada (MSTA CANADA) and Saskatchewan Industrial & Mining Suppliers Association Inc (SIMSA) commence a partnership.


The Mining Supplier Trade Association Canada (MSTA CANADA) and Saskatchewan Industrial & Mining Suppliers Association Inc (SIMSA) have commenced a strategic partnership by signing an MoU.  The MoU will see MSTA CANADA benefits extend to SIMSA members and allow SIMSA to use the MSTA CANADA as a hyper-focused international business arm.

The MoU is also the first step towards building a pan-Canadian network of mining suppliers. “As the national association representing the Mining Supply and Services (MSS) sector, I am very pleased to formally establish our already great collaborative relationship with SIMSA and look forward to further strengthen our relationship and better serve our respective members” said Ryan McEachern, Managing Director of MSTA CANADA.

The MoU will see the two Associations collaborate and develop strategies that will support commercial opportunities that are mutually beneficial to the member companies of each organization in MSTA CANADA and SIMSA. “By working with the MSTA, SIMSA is able to extend greater value to SIMSA’s members, while maintaining its current initiatives” said Eric Anderson, Executive director of SIMSA.  “It will also build better linkages into mining companies around the world and increase international opportunities for SIMSA members.”



For 40 years, MSTA CANADA has been the national voice for the Canadian mining supply and services sector. The member based non-profit association mandate is to connect members to opportunities to grow their business in the exploration and mining and sector. MSTA CANADA achieves this mandate through its three pillars of purpose: 1) Networking 2) Education & Information and 3) Advocacy.



SIMSA is a non-profit organization representing more than 300 Saskatchewan-based supplier-members, who provide goods and services to the industrial, mining, and energy sectors. SIMSA is currently the only organization that represents suppliers that have a physical presence in Saskatchewan, with most also having their global headquarters in the province.  SIMSA’s membership represents over 32,000 employees in Saskatchewan and over $14-billlion in annual sales.
