OTTAWA—The Canadian Construction Association (CCA) will host the Leading the Evolution industry summit on emerging trends impacting workforce, technology, market forces and procurement.
The association’s recent independent research report will also be unveiled at the summit.
The event will be held April 25 and 26 at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Toronto and features guest speakers, a panel and roundtable discussions. It is an opportunity for construction leaders to engage in focused conversations on fast-emerging trends in Canada, indicates a release.
A cocktail reception and dinner on the first day of the summit will include a presentation by Abacus Data CEO David Coletto. The topic will be What Generational Change Means to the Construction Industry in Canada.
On the second day of the summit, the CCA will share the findings in the research report. They will be joined by Pierre Lavallee, president and CEO of the Canada Infrastructure Bank, Peter Hall, vice-president and chief economist of Export Development Canada, and Coletto.
The CCA partnered with Abacus Data, a Canadian polling and market research firm, to conduct interviews on industry trends with Canada’s construction industry leaders and experts covering key areas such as the workforce, technology, market forces and procurement, states the release.
“Our members will benefit from the development of an independent research report created by the industry for the industry,” said CCA president Mary Van Buren in a statement. “The final report will provide an in-depth understanding of emerging issues with strategic insights and inspiration from leaders across the Canadian construction industry.”
