Vision & Mission

CAOEC remains true to what its founding members envisioned in 1949: to promote a strong industry through safe and efficient operations in Canada's rig sector. The Association's vision and mission are driven by Member companies and the many volunteers that form CAOEC's extensive network.

Working together, our members identify where collaboration can contribute to the continuous development of our industry as we strive to be the best in the world.
