CCA stresses infrastructure, workforce issues on Hill Day

OTTAWA — The Canadian Construction Association held its annual Hill Day on Nov. 6, with nearly 100 construction leaders from across the country gathering on Parliament Hill to visit members of parliament to discuss priority topics.

Predetermined messages included asking parliamentarians to commit to comprehensive infrastructure investment; help address the workforce shortage by overhauling immigration; and modernize procurement processes.  

The construction industry contributed $151 billion to Canada’s GDP in 2022 and generated $92.7 billion in employment income to 1.6 million people across the country, a release stated. 

“The Canadian Construction Association is urging the federal government to collaborate with the construction industry and implement policy changes that can unleash the full potential of an industry that is an economic powerhouse,” stated CCA chair Brendan Nobes in a statement.
