VIDEO: Celebrating 100 Years
The Vancouver Island Construction Association is celebrating its centennial in 2012. For one hundred years the Vancouver Island Construction Association (VICA) has proudly served its members as they built office buildings, stores and schools on Vancouver Island. Today VICA provides education, advocacy, access to project opportunities and other benefits to more than 500 members, representing thousands of people working in the industrial, commercial, institutional, and multi-story construction sectors.
The centennial year will include a number of celebrations, including events, a history publication and a legacy construction project. Visit this site throughout the year as we continue the celebrations.
Thank you to our CENTENNIAL CHAMPION:
The Victoria office hosted an open house on Wednesday May 16th and The Nanaimo offce hosted one on Oct 11th. Approximately 250 VICA members and the construction community attended these events.

THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE WHO ATTENED OUR RECENT CENTENNIAL EVENTS!
Other projects are also underway in this busy celebration year, including:
Young Construction Leaders Legacy Project
Thank you to our Centennial Legacy Project Champion:
The YCL legacy project involves construction leaders volunteering their time, labour and resources to develop projects that support the local community. For this year’s YCL Legacy Project, please read the PRESS RELEASE with project details.
After thoroughly reviewing the applications, this year’s successful project is the Gorge Waterway Nature House operated by World Fisheries Trust.
The House is located in the Esquimalt-Gorge Park and serves the general public, community groups and schools. Each year over 9000 people have visited the nature house for community celebrations and educational programs on the local aquatic biodiversity and environmental conservation
