Master Painters and Decorators Association (MPDA) is a non-profit association of quality paint and coating contractors. It is dedicated to the establishment of quality standards and quality assurance in the painting and coatings industry.
The association was originally founded in 1899, was regularized in 1911 and was formally incorporated as a society in 1927. The operations of the society are to be carried on throughout the province of British Columbia and our offices have been located in the greater Vancouver area since inception.
Our members are active primarily in the ICI (institutional, commercial, industrial) sector and in Residential (high-rise, townhouse and larger) developments.
The purposes of the society are to:
- Promote the interest of the paint and coatings industry.
- Establish the best relations within the trade industry by:
With these mandates, the society produced the first Architectural and Repainting Specification Manuals in the mid 1960’s. These manuals have been used throughout the world for many years and form the basis for many training programs.
By 1967, an Inspection & Guarantee program had been developed (MPDA Specification Services Inc).
The MPDA's standards were the basis for the former CGSB's (Canadian Government Specification Board) National Painting Specification. That organization evolved into the Canadian General Standards Board, and the 'core' of that standard continues to be based upon the MPDA Architectural Specification Manual. Both of the original MPDA painting specification manuals are now produced by Master Painters Institute (MPI Architectural Painting Specification Manual and the MPI Maintenance Repainting Manual).
