Enform and OSSA merger update

April 5, 2016

On September 9, 2015 Enform Canada and the Oil Sands Safety Association (OSSA) jointly announced the two industry associations had agreed in principle to merge into one safety organization. Closing of an agreement was expected in early 2016, subject to final formal agreement and approval from federal government agencies. The closing of the agreement is currently expected towards year-end 2016 due to an unexpected delay in the process for obtaining federal agency approvals.

OSSA and Enform remain supportive and committed to a new organization and are pursuing initiatives proposed by the merger through joint venture arrangements pending final regulatory approvals and closing of the agreement.
