SCMA is an original member of the International Federation of Purchasing and Supply Management (IFPSM) and the only Canadian association representing this country’s supply chain management professionals in IFPSM .
SCMA members add value to all sectors of the Canadian economy and are found within organizations of every size. Some of the largest sectors employing supply chain management professionals are:
A non-profit association, SCMA is a federation of the National Secretariat, and the Provincial and Territorial Institutes, working together to achieve a common vision.
The coordinated work of the federation is defined by a Federation Agreement, signed in June 2015 which also outlines the respective roles and responsibilities of all Federation members. As an example, education and accreditation programs are developed by the SCMA National Secretariat and delivered through the Institutes. Additionally, National is responsible for national branding plans, federal government relations and international strategic alliances. Institute partners are responsible for communicating with their membership, recruiting new members and conferring the SCMP designation.
SCMA National's strategic objectives are determined by a competency-based Board of Directors, in alignment with the overarching Strategic Framework of the Federation. The slate of National directors is proposed annually by the Leadership Development Committee and approved at the AGM. Headquartered in Toronto, the SCMA National Secretariat is managed by a full-time professional staff.
