The Alberta Painting Contractors Association (APCA) represents the major players in the Alberta painting industry with a focus on commercial and industrial projects.

APCA supports a skilled workforce providing quality service. APCA awards annual scholarships to assist apprentices seeking their journeyman trade designation in painting and decorating. Luncheon meetings are held from September through June to keep members advised of Association activities and to provide a forum for guest speakers with topics of direct relevance to the industry.

Inspection and Guarantee Program

APCA is the approved quality control association for the Inspection Program in Alberta. This Inspection Program was developed by the Master Painters Institute (MPI) in order to guarantee the use of quality products and proper procedures by qualified tradespeople. The paint contract may only be 5% of the total project cost but 85% of the finished product is judged on the first impression made by the painting and decorating.
