About Us

Who We Are

As the Vancouver Island Construction Association (VICA), we serve our construction community: the institutional, commercial, industrial, civil, and multi-residential construction sectors on Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, and other coastal areas of British Columbia. VICA members come from all areas of our construction community.

What We Do

  • To foster growth, economic stability, and prosperity in the construction community;
  • To promote a greater understanding of the construction industry among policy and decision-makers, the construction and associated industries, purchasers of construction services or products, and the general public;
  • To promote industry and operational excellence; and
  • To promote fair, open, transparent, and ethical standards and practices within the construction community.

Our Vision

Building a better construction community.
