CCA’s a strong foundation for a stronger Canada
As a part of Hill Day on November 7, the Canadian Construction Association (CCA) and industry leaders will once again be on Parliament Hill to remind legislators of the construction sector’s essential role in creating and maintaining the infrastructure Canadians use daily.
CCA is urging the federal government to partner with the construction industry through a new campaign, a strong foundation for a stronger Canada.
Government needs to partner with Canada’s construction industry to strengthen foundation for economic growth
On October 4, CCA launched an industry call to action urging the federal government to partner with the construction industry on building a strong foundation for a stronger Canada.
CCA is calling on the federal government to make the following strategic changes:
- Commit to a comprehensive, long-term infrastructure investment strategy that includes a 25-year plan for housing and trade-enabling infrastructure.
- Address the workforce shortage by modernizing the existing immigration policy and points system to better reflect the workforce needs of the Canadian economy.
- Modernize procurement to ensure practices better balance risk-sharing between public contracts and the private sector, reduce red tape, and accelerate approvals for critical projects.
