We’ve Changed Our Name

Introducing the Canadian Equipment Dealers Association, or CEDA for short! 

We’ve only dropped one “E,” but we’re opening our membership Canada-wide. 

Why the Change? 

CEEDA (Canada East Equipment Dealers’ Association) worked primarily with farmstead and equipment dealers in Ontario and eastern provinces. 

But your needs have changed. 

We’re seeing cross-provincial mergers and partnerships within our membership, which has limited the way we can serve you. 

By expanding our services across Canada, we can now support our membership as a whole. 

What Does That Mean for Me?

As CEDA continues to grow, you’ll benefit from additional buying power.

Similar to a merger or acquisition, we’ll be able to negotiate better terms with our providers on your behalf by having a larger membership base. Additionally, we’ll be able to expand our CEDA-led programs to suit more of your needs. 

Imagine more resources for: 

  • Health and Safety 
  • Training and Career Development 
  • Human Resources 
  • Legal Fund 
  • Networking Events 

You’ll also gain access to a wider breadth of knowledge and expertise sharing. Networking events will pull minds together with different perspectives that could be useful to growing your business, streamlining your processes, and more. 

How Do I Access These Resources? 

Many existing resources are available through our website, which is changing to CanadianEquipmentDealers.org.

Don’t worry; if you continue to type in CEEDA.ca, you’ll still reach our site for the foreseeable future. 

However, we recommend updating your bookmark to the new web address. 

Our emails are changing too. You can reach me at Bev@CanadianEquipmentDealers.org or Suzanne at Suzanne@CanadianEquipmentDealers.org

Similar to our website, our old emails will still work for now, so you don’t have to worry about your requests getting lost. 

Again, we recommend updating your email address book. 

We’ll continue communicating member updates with you across social media, email, and our monthly newsletter. Our website is updated regularly, so you can always check in for up-to-date information.

If you’re not following us, make sure you do!

When Does the Change Happen? 

Immediately—starting now, you’ll see our new name and logos on all our channels. 

The expansion, however, will take some time, so we'll keep you updated.

More Questions? 

As always, we appreciate your continued support! Please get in touch if you have any questions we haven’t answered.
