The Aluminum Association of Canada represents all five Canadian primary aluminum producers that together operate eleven aluminum smelters. For many years an active participant in the Canadian Industry Program for Energy Conservation (CIPEC), the Association has set up a task force on energy efficiency.

Action plans have been submitted yearly and tangible measures have been introduced in each of the plants, yielding excellent results.

Natural Resources Canada, acting through the Office of Energy Efficiency, suggested producing a guide intended especially for the aluminum industry. Thanks to financial support from the Government of Canada, the firm Soprin-ADS was entrusted with the mandate of producing this guide.
