Annual General Meeting

Join senior management teams from fluid power companies across the country at the 2023 CFPA AGM, taking place in St. Andrews by the Sea from June 7-9. We will stay at the Algonquin Resort, one of Canada’s most luxurious and legendary resorts. Rich in history, the resort has been meticulously restored to its original splendour.



How Fun at Work Leads to Innovation and Progress

This keynote will teach how to harness the benefits of play to create innovative, collaborative and productive environments. Using the core values of improvisation and over 20 years of experience as a comedian, Robert Hawke will show your team how to use laughter as their secret weapon at work. Rob is a cancer survivor who learned these techniques to overcome depression and anger and will inspire you to overcome all of life’s challenges as well!

Market Insights

A hot topic at the AGM, and as a leader in your industry, you want to know about microeconomic trends that affect your fluid power industry, as well as the macroeconomic conditions affecting Canada, North America and the rest of the world. We will have more than one keynote speaker addressing market insight relevant to our specific industry and beyond.

Industry Trends

We plan to update trends in green energy, natural gas and nuclear power. These will be critically important in the coming years, and we need to understand the role of fluid power in Canada’s goal to build a world where the environment and the economy go hand in hand.


Networking is a key benefit of association membership, and this is the perfect opportunity to form new relationships with senior leaders in the fluid power industry. Not only will we have fantastic ocean-side receptions and dinners, but we have brought back “Minute to Win It.” We will be introducing the CFPA Amazing Race and welcoming some of Yuk Yuks' best comedians to keep you entertained! With the right mix of business topics and networking, you will leave the AGM better informed, connected, and engaged in a host of new ideas.
