On September 3, 2013 the Supply Chain & Logistics Association of Canada (SCL) and the Purchasing Management Association of Canada officially merged to become the Supply Chain Management Association (SCMA). Representing nearly 8000 members working in all facets of the supply chain, SCMA is the country's principle source for education, training, professional development and networking in the field.
