Foster economic growth and prosperity for the natural resource industry.
To promote and facilitate interaction, education, and business opportunities between primary natural resource manufacturers/producers and the supply and service industry.
RISA is a Canadian Non-for-Profit industry association. Although located in Edmonton, Alberta, RISA is national in scope with members from across Canada. We are dedicated to facilitating business opportunities for member firms by sourcing capital project information and key management and procurement contacts in the Oil & Gas, Energy, Mining, Forestry, and Bio-Products industries.
RISA started out as an association with the focus being primarily on the Forestry Industry in Alberta, Canada. At the time, we were known as FISAA (Forest Industry Suppliers Association of Alberta) and our mission was "to be the leading Alberta assocation fostering business opportunities between forest industry producers and suppliers". From there, the assocation grew and eventually added the Logging Industry to our scope of service. At this time, FISAA became FISLA (Forest Industry Suppliers & Logging Association) in 2001. Eventually, FISLA started to expand its scope of service to include all the natural resource sectors across Canada and became RISA (Resource Industry Suppliers Association).
While we have grown and adapted our association to industry and economic demands, our primary focus of fostering business opportunities has not changed. As a not-for-profit association our focus has always been, and will continue to be, on our members and how we can bring value to them through business to business connections.
Our membership base spans across the natural resource industry sectors and includes businesses and associations both large and small in scale. Our events have attracted members from outside these particular sectors as well and includes organizations who may provide goods and/or services that are outside the core scope of the natural resource industry sectors but are essential none-the-less.
