Canadian Construction Association asks federal government to restore business confidence
The Canadian Construction Association (CCA) is asking the federal government to work with the provinces and stakeholders involved in the Trans Mountain Expansion Project to mediate a solution and restore business confidence.
The Canadian Construction Association supports the concept of sustainable development, recognizing the need to balance environmental and economic considerations in the decision-making process. Also, CCA supports the development and use of a fair, equitable and expedient Canadian environmental assessment and review process. Furthermore, CCA supports and promotes long-term, sustainable, transparent and predictable investment in Canada’s strategic infrastructure. CCA defines strategic infrastructure as being assets required to create new, or enhance existing, national economic, commercial or transportation activity.
‘’The post-approval delays and the continuing debate between the federal and provincial governments have created a situation that is not predictable, putting Canada’s reputation with the Canadian and international business communities at risk,’’ said Mary Van Buren, CCA’s president.
Construction is a major contributor to the Canadian economy. CCA’s members encourage the federal government to work with the industry and stakeholders to advance this necessary infrastructure project that will generate significant economic opportunity and benefits for all Canadians.
