Established in 1918, Canadian Construction Association’s (CCA) vision is to build Canada with ethics, skills and responsibility. CCA’s mission is to be the national voice for the Canadian construction industry. Members firms join CCA through their local or provincial construction associations and are entitled to numerous membership benefits including standard documents and construction guides, as well as updates on federal public policy and regulatory requirements. CCA represents more than 17,000 members firms drawn from 70 local and provincial integrated partner associations across Canada. CCA gives voice to the public policy, legal, and standards development goals of contractors, suppliers, and allied business professionals working in, or with, Canada’s non-residential construction industry.

Apprentices receive hands-on training from certified tradespeople along with in-class technical training. The Nova Scotia Apprenticeship Agency partners with industry, community organizations and equity groups to promote apprenticeship opportunities, and to ensure that trades specific training is responsive to the needs of industry and the Nova Scotia job market.
