NCIA was formed in 2001 as a successor to the Fort Saskatchewan Regional Industrial Association (founded in 1981). Our members wanted a new organization with a clearer mandate to understand and address environmental concerns related to industrial operations and development in the area. They also wanted an association through which industry could take cooperative action on other common interests.
Today, NCIA represents member companies operating or planning to operate in the Industrial Heartland area. It employs a full-time Executive Director and maintains a permanent office in downtown Fort Saskatchewan.
