The International Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers maintains a political presence in Canada and the United States monitoring developments that can have an impact on our industry and our members.
We will strive to keep you updated on those developments through this page. At times we may seek assistance in shaping opinion on certain issues or legislation. This may include letter writing campaigns or other forms of feedback sent to individual legislators.
We will do our best to keep you informed, but if members come across topics that might require our attention, please do not hesitate to contact us.
