TORONTO, FEBRUARY 25, 2019 — For the past 100 years, CSA Group has been dedicated to advancing safety and protecting the environment. Established in 1919 as the organization responsible for improving the safety of Canada’s infrastructure (such as railway bridges and electricity) through the development of national standards, CSA Group has evolved to also address emerging issues such as climate change resiliency, the sharing economy, cybersecurity, energy storage and active assisted living, to name a few.
