The Canadian Association of Motive Power Educators (CAMPE) is a national voluntary membership organization created in 1995 and incorporated in 1996.  It was mandated by the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC) to represent colleges and institutes specializing in motive power, to government, business, and industry both in Canada and internationally.

CAMPE’s initial focus was in the area of automotive maintenance and worked closely with the CARS Council – Canadian Automotive and Repair Council, as well as OEMs.  CAMPE has enjoyed representation over the years from most colleges in Canada delivering motive power training.

Over the years, the fields of training expanded to include other motive power vehicles such as buses, motorcycles, airplanes, trucks and trailers, heavy duty equipment as well as management / operations / logistics training.

Today CAMPE remains a national voluntary membership independent organization increasing its membership and the sphere of activities related to the motive power industry.
