Update from Canadian Construction Association – April 28

CCA has updated its COVID-19 Standardized Protocols for All Canadian Construction Sites to underline the urgency around following health guidelines on worksites, including wearing an N-95 mask or a commercial-grade equivalent, maintaining physical distance while traveling to and from worksites, limiting your daily contacts, working remotely when possible, and washing your hands frequently.


We wanted to advise you that we have made the difficult decision to cancel our next in-person event, CANS 2021 Spring Fling. The safety of our members and event participants is of the utmost importance. While we want to celebrate a booming construction season, reconnecting in-person with our members across the province is not possible at this time. We look forward to joining you in Cape Breton in 2022.

COVID-19 Update for CANS Members – April 23, 2021

CANS Office updates and COVID-19 safety reminders and tips for your worksites.

In recent conversations with the Department of Labour and Advanced Education, they have noted that the construction industry is doing an overall good job. It is imperative that you and your employees follow public health orders and directives, including maintaining social distancing, wearing a mask during in-person meetings, and ensuring hand sanitizer is readily available.

Important CANS Update: COVID-19

Today, Dr. Strang and Premier Rankin addressed the province and introduced new restrictions and measures to help limit the spread of COVID-19. The construction industry worked safely over the last year and we aim to do the same again while respecting all public health guidelines during this next wave.
