Since 1955 the Sign Association of Canada (SAC-ACE) has successfully promoted the welfare of the sign industry, improved the status of its members in the community and benefited the users of signs. However the traditional boundaries of the sign industry have expanded due to the rapidly changing level of technology and the evolution of the commercial marketplace. The Sign Association of Canada has recognized these trends and has advanced to partner with related industries and sectors that use, design and manufacture commercial images.

As the host of Sign Expo Canada, the national trade show for the sign industry, SAC-ACE is delighted to showcase the latest products, services and trends from industry suppliers at this annual show.

Please take a moment to review our website and our present initiatives. SAC-ACE has evolved dramatically over the past 5 years, as has the sign industry. From new value added member service programs to the development of additional accredited training courses and a highly proactive approach in dealing with governmental and regulatory issues.

SAC-ACE is poised to lead our industry into the next decade.
