With 20,000 member firms, employing over 1.5 million Canadians and representing 7 per cent of Canada’s GDP, our industry can have a strong voice – but only if we use it.
Operations have been impacted by supply chain disruptions, staff shortages, increased cost of materials, as well as governmental ordinances requiring partial or complete work stoppages which vary across provinces. The industry needs fair consideration from federal, provincial and municipal governments when these unprecedented circumstances have an impact on contractual agreements.
CCA recommends that eligible costs be reimbursed up to 5% of the contract value as a starting point, subject to the program being adjusted as the duration and full impact of COVID-19 become more clear over time.
Please encourage your friends and family to send a letter to their member of parliament (MP). It takes only two minutes to make a difference.
The health, safety and well-being of our workers, their families and friends, and the communities we operate in is always the top priority of the Canadian Construction Association and our 20,000 member firms. It’s important that we work together during this crisis. We are stronger together.
