The Mission of the Canadian Association of Piano Technicians / Association Canadienne des Accordeurs de Piano is to encourage the highest standards of piano service by offering
opportunities for continuing education and fellowship in a supportive non-competitive environment. This sharing and mentoring tradition of learning piano technology continues to this day at annual conventions alternating between locations in Eastern and Western Canada. Unfortunately, the convention planned for Toronto in May has been canceled because of travel concerns, etc. related to the Covid-19 situation.
Currently the Association is represented by members from coast to coast across Canada including amateurs and expert piano tuners and technicians, many with more than 25 years of experience.
Unisonus, the publication for members of CAPT/ACAP has enabled members to stay connected in a common pursuit of ongoing education in piano technology. The first issue of Unisonus was published in 1983, although the Association’s roots began much earlier in 1971 in western Canada. (see CAPT/ACAP History).

In 2005 the Canadian Association of Piano Technicians launched a goal of encouraging full day (and sometimes several days long at Conventions) “hands on” training sessions for piano technicians at various locations across Canada. This practice continues with seminars and “real-world” learning projects facilitated in various Canadian cities by CAPT/ACAP support and sponsorship.
