Nov. 21, 2011 – The Canadian Window and Door Manufacturer's Association
(CWDMA) formally unveiled its new name and logo as part of the opening
ceremonies for Win-door on Nov. 15. The association will now be known as
Fenestration Canada.

The name change was announced at the CWDMA's conference in Banff, Alta., in May, but the new name was phased in over the summer and fall. The Win-door ribbon-cutting marked the formal adoption of the new name, and the end of the old identity.

Fenestration Canada past president Kevin Pelley and president Yvan Houle shared the ribbon-cutting duties. Houle explained that the old acronym, CWDMA, had always been awkward to pronounce and remember and had not enjoyed wide recognition in the fenestration industry. The name Fenestration Canada was chosen for its simplicity, its accurate description of the association's sector and the fact that it is the same in French as well as English. Houle said the new name marks a new determination by the association to represent window and door manufacturers in every part of the country, providing a single, national voice even while working closely with regional groups.
