What Our Members Are Saying About
Virtual Commissioning at the NCA
*This service is complimentary for NCA Members *

Non-Members: $22 (includes HST & seal)
Here's some feedback we've received since we started this new virtual service:

"We find it to be a quick and easy process saving us the drive a few times per month."
 Terry Hinan, President, T.R. Hinan Contractors Inc.


"I personally think this new commissioning service saves time and money for us not having to make a trip all the way to NCA offices. Very accommodating!"
Anthony Vitaterna, President, Nexterra Substructures Inc (An AV Group Company)


"This new service has made our process more efficient."
Laurie Huneault,​, Accounting Technician, Hy-Grade Precast Concrete Ltd.


"The current system (virtual commissioning) that is in place for the signing and commissioning of Statutory Declarations during the course of this COVID19 pandemic works very well, and is very convenient."
John Werkman, CET, Project Manager, Duomax Developments Ltd.


"Just wanted you to know that the new virtual commissioning service you have instituted is a great addition to NCA’s services. Not only is it quick and easy to do but it saves the time and hassle of me having to drive to St. Catharines from Port Colborne to get it done in person. That’s a 35-minute drive.......each way. Great idea!!!!"
Don Smylski, Technical Sales, Yarnell Overhead Door Ltd.


"I think it’s great, I don’t have to leave the office; you're quick to respond."
Sharon O'Hara, Job Coordinator, O'Hara Trucking & Excavating


"I really like getting statutory declarations completed via virtual meeting and email. It’s a real time saver. The only down side is I don’t get to visit the NCA team in person!"
(We miss you, too, Gerry!)
Gerry Ducharme, President & GM, Regional Doors & Hardware (Niagara)

The NCA has successfully been providing virtual commissioning of statutory declarations to members, via video conferencing and cell phone and/or email. We encourage members to familiarize themselves with this new process, and to keep a supply of CCDC 9 seals on hand. Please arrange to pick them up via appointment only with Natalie in our office, office@niagaraconstruction.org.

Virtual commissioning takes less than five minutes, from start to finish.
We were nervous when we started, too!
We quickly learned that this is just a super tech way to take advantage of one of your complimentary NCA membership benefits.

The current process essentially entails:

  • Member emails NCA Staff Karin or Natalie when they are ready to have a stat dec commissioned; staff will email Member instructions to set up the video conference (Facetime, Zoom, Skype, Duo)

  • Member has photo identification, seal, and the UNSIGNED stat dec ready

  • Staff will witness the signing, and the Member will scan and send by email to Staff

  • Staff will verify, sign and date the stat dec, and scan and email it back to the Member

  • If you don't have a printer/scanner/copier option, this can be accomplished via your cell phone using an app called "Microsoft Lens." Let us help you set it up! Also, most android cell phones are loaded with the default app "Adobe Scan and the Notes app is generally loaded into iphones.
