We are the Insulation Manufacturers

NAIMA Canada (North American Insulation Manufacturers Association) is an association for manufacturers of fiberglass, rock wool, and slag wool insulation conducting business in Canada. We were established to promote energy efficiency and environmental sustainability through the use of insulation, to encourage safe production and installation of insulation materials, and to support improved comfort for the occupants throughout the home or building’s lifetime.

NAIMA Canada asserts that increasing insulation in homes and buildings decreases the energy required to heat and cool spaces, resulting in lowered energy bills and reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, properly insulated homes and buildings improve the comfort of indoor space, and that indoor air quality is improved with the use of insulation products, including products that have been certified by GREENGUARD.
