Trade Division Programs
RMA Trade works hard to specialize in certain product areas, and has created customized programs for our membership in response to popular demand. Please see the RMA program listings below.
RMA Benefits Program
RMA Trade is proudly offering municipalities and all public sector entities in Alberta a unique employee benefits program. By partnering with Lane Quinn as a service provider, RMA is providing a new outlet for organizations to customize individual benefit programs which fit their employee’s needs and financial parameters.
RMA Energy Program
RMA has partnered with 8760 Energy to provide Electricity and Natural Gas group procurement. As an independent and objective energy group procurement company, 8760 protects Canadian organizations and businesses from the risk of volatile energy costs, while delivering a transparent alternative to lowering costs year after year.

RMA Cellular Program
The RMA Cellular Program delivers significant cost savings by aggregating and tendering member requirements together and providing options that would otherwise be unavailable to any individual entity. The goal of the program is to engineer a complete solution for departmental reporting , cellular administration, automated cost allocation, and wireless cost reduction.
Staff and Family Cellular Plan
RMA understands that many of their members have staff own a personal phone line in addition to their work number. To utilize the benefit generated by the sizeable, aggregated account, the RMA is pleased to extend their Cellular Program to staff members and their families.

Sourcewell RMA Contract Purchasing
Sourcewell is a self-supporting government organization that partners with municipalities to boost community success. RMA and Sourcewell, as like-structured organizations, have constructed a formal arrangement. This will allow RMA members to access Sourcewell’s capital purchasing programs including CAT. These contracts are tendered regularly by Sourcewell on the member’s behalf. Learn more about Sourcewell at sourcewell-mn.gov.

RMA Tire Program
RMA Trade has created a Tier One National Tire Program with all major tire manufacturers. On average, the overall Tire Program logs an annual purchase volume of $6 million and is the largest government buying group in Canada. In return, this provides all members with access to discounts ranging between 32 percent – 55 percent. Click here to download the Tire Program Price Guide
Fabric Shelter Program
The RMA Fabric Shelter Program has been developed in order to continue providing members with high quality structures at significant cost savings. Through a competitive bidding process the Trade Division has established a standing offer to streamline the purchasing process and ensure both trade agreement and construction code compliancy.
Grader Blade Program
RMA’s Grader Blade Program was developed in 2016 to streamline the procurement process for grader blades and other ground engagement tools. The Trade Division utilized a Request for Proposal (RFP) to establish firm contractual agreements with selected suppliers and establish a standing offer agreement with several vendors that provides our membership with pricing reflective of the collective volume of all RMA members.
