About the Show
The Canadian Furniture Show has been held since 1972; it is owned and produced by the Quebec Furniture Manufacturers’ Association. The only national furniture show in the country and one of the top 5 largest trade shows in Canada, it brings together industry professionals, manufacturers, retailers, designers, importers, and suppliers from Canada, the United States and all over the world, to display their latest collections and trends. It is the place where buying decisions are made for the entire Canadian furniture industry.
Previously known as The Canadian Home Furnishings Market or TCHFM, the Show has essentially been a trade show for over 40 years.
The 2016 edition of the Show welcomed over 230 exhibitors, including more than 50 Canadian furniture manufacturers, and 7,000 participants.
About the Quebec Furniture Manufacturers Association
The mission of the Quebec Furniture Manufacturers Association is to actively contribute to the growth of Quebec’s furniture industry and oversee its promotion and development in Canada, the United States and worldwide. Founded in 1942, the non-profit organization includes manufacturers of residential, office and institutional furniture, manufacturers of furniture components, as well as product and service suppliers. The QFMA also defends the interests of its members and conveys industry issues on various speaking platforms and to government authorities.
The QFMA has more than 130 members, some 100 of which are manufacturers of furniture and components, which represents the majority of Quebec’s office, residential and institutional furniture production.
Furniture-industry companies, most of which are Quebec-owned, are in every region of the province and are among the biggest employers in the manufacturing sector. Quebec accounts for close to 45% of Canadian jobs in the industry.
