Canadian Construction Association encourages action on the 2018 Top 10 Endangered Places List

The Canadian Construction Association (CCA), in support of its ongoing commitment to community benefits, is the 2018 sponsor of the National Trust for Canada’s Top 10 Endangered Places List. CCA encourages its members and the public to check the recently announced list to help save places that matter to them. 

Places built by CCA members make a difference

“The Top 10 Endangered Places List is an important tool that helps draw attention to the diversity of Canada’s historic places and the challenges they face,” says Natalie Bull, the National Trust for Canada’s executive director. “We hope the release of the 2018 List will help support local community groups involved in saving these 10 great historic places.” 

“Our member companies contribute so much to their communities. The buildings - be it a school, a library or sports facility, to name a few - and places they construct make a difference in people’s lives. They have likely built some of the buildings featured on the 2018 Top 10 Endangered Places List or live closeby,” said Zey Emir, CCA chair. “Helping the National Trust for Canada shed light on these places is a great way to celebrate CCA’s centennial. We encourage our members and the public to check the 2018 list to see if a nearby or otherwise cherished place is on the list and see how they can help save places that matter.”
