Welcome to the 2017 Annual General Meetings
of the Pan American Standards Commission (COPANT)
and the Pacific Area Standards Congress (PASC)

Dear participants,

John Walter
On behalf of the Standards Council of Canada, I am pleased to welcome you to the 2017 Annual General Meetings of the Pan American Standards Commission (COPANT) and the Pacific Area Standards Congress (PASC).
 
I am delighted to be hosting these meetings in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. This is an especially exciting year for us to welcome you here because 2017 is Canada’s historic 150th anniversary.
 
The theme for the 2017 meetings is “Regional Collaboration in a Global Environment.” And while COPANT and PASC are already important regional organizations, there is more we can do to collaborate. Hosting these annual meetings jointly, for instance, presents a unique opportunity to begin working more closely together for the mutual benefit of both regions.
 
The programme for these shared meetings is diverse, featuring workshops, presentations, and ample opportunity for networking—including a very special day of joint activities for members of COPANT and PASC on Wednesday, May 3.
 
In addition, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Committee on conformity assessment (CASCO), also meeting in Vancouver prior to the COPANT and PASC meetings, has invited all participants to attend an ISO Workshop on Services and the Future of Standards in Services on Friday, April 28, 2017.
 
I encourage you to register as soon as possible and I look forward to welcoming you in person in Vancouver to explore opportunities for greater collaboration.
 
Sincerely,

John Walter
CEO, Standards Council of Canada
