Industry Information

Source of Industry Information

VICA is your resource for Vancouver Island construction data. Members have access to quarterly construction reports with an industry outlook, building permit data, major projects, construction costs, and employment stats, as well as regular sector-specific business intelligence, including pre-bid and project opportunities.

We also offer opportunities to grow your business through various events and courses.

Join local industry leaders for a day of learning at our annual Construction Conference, and get exclusive business intel at our members-only Capital Project Plan Series events held throughout the year, across the Island. VICA members also save money on construction training.
