Canadian Construction Industry on the Hill: Unite. Evolve. Lead

Ottawa, November 27, 2018  – The Canadian Construction Association (CCA) and 100 of its members are gathering on Parliament Hill today to meet with federal decision makers about the essential role the industry plays in the lives of Canadians. CCA is a 20,000 firm strong organization drawing membership from 63 local and provincial construction associations in every province and territory. Annually construction is responsible for nearly $119 billion in economic activity or 7 per cent of Canada’s overall gross domestic product (GDP).

“Our central message is that the Canadian Construction industry is the backbone of the government’s Investing in Canada plan,” said Zey Emir, CCA Chair. “Our industry employs 1.4 million Canadians, many who work for small- or medium-sized firms. The government’s continued investment in infrastructure spending and commitment to ensuring that the funds flow to communities is essential to a vibrant Canada, ” Zey continued.

General, trade and civil contractors together with manufacturers, suppliers and industry association leaders  will discuss three key issues facing the industry: investor confidence in Canada, inclusive workforce and innovation.

Today also marks a very important milestone in CCA’s history as they celebrate 100 years of service building a better Canada.
