CWB (which includes the Canadian Welding Bureau and the Canadian Welding Association) was formed by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) over 60 years ago. The purpose of the Welding Bureau is to administer Canada’s national welding standards, which are embedded in the national building code and other industry specific documents. Funded by industry, and acting on behalf of the Canadian public, the Welding Bureau plays an important role by certifying welding companies that create products for use within Canada as well as the welders and welding consumables used in their creation. Within the Structural and erecting industry it is mandatory that all companies be certified by the Welding Bureau however many non-welding companies choose to be voluntarily certified, as the Welding Bureau is the only organization that issues nationally recognized credentials.
