OTTAWA, March 6, 2019 - The Lean Construction Institute of Canada (LCI-C), a special committee of the Canadian Construction Association (CCA), is bringing its fourth annual training day and conference to Montreal April 30 – May 2. This event offers a unique opportunity to familiarize yourself with some of the key Lean techniques as well as to meet and learn from other practitioners and leading experts. Visit the LCI-C website for more information and to register.

“Lean construction can help deliver projects more efficiently while increasing productivity in all aspects of the project,” said Mary Van Buren, CCA’s president. “Attending LCI-C’s training day and conference is a great way to kickstart your company’s Lean journey, bring more colleagues onboard or to get new ideas.”

Training day and conference attendees include members of the design and consulting community, contractors, public-and private-sector owners as well as key members of the Canadian building industry. In addition to the educational aspect, it is a tremendous opportunity to network and to access decision makers from across the country, all of whom are interested in increasing productivity and transforming the Canadian construction industry.

Get the Lean construction basics

This year’s training day on April 30 offers three full-day training programs for you to choose from:

  1. Lean construction: how to generate productivity gains on construction sites (run in French)
  2. Advanced Lean bootcamp
  3. AGC LCEP unit 5: Lean supply chain and assembly

Deepen your knowledge at the conference

The May 1 and 2 conference program consists of over 20 sessions, 5 of which will be run in French. LCI-C is pleased to have a faculty of more than 30 knowledgeable speakers willing to share their expertise, hands-on experiences and success stories.

“This leanWorks-themed conference will showcase examples of success stories from various stages of Lean journeys,” said Bob Hildenbrandt, LCI-C chair. “Since we will be in Quebec, we’re delighted to deliver this conference in both official languages.”

It pays off to bring your team

LCI-C is offering great incentives to get your entire team educated on Lean construction. If you register six members from your firm for the training day, you will be reimbursed for one registration. Registering additional attendees from your firm for the conference will save each of them $150 off their registration fees!
