ACA praises Alberta premier’s mandate to ministers

EDMONTON – The Alberta Construction Association (ACA) is applauding the direction Premier Danielle Smith has given to her ministers as beneficial to the province’s construction industry.

The new Alberta premier recently released ministerial mandate which the ACA praised as addressing “key issues for Alberta contractors” in a news release.

The mandate letters can be found here, and highlights include:

  • Sustained infrastructure investment including trade corridors to support Albertan’s quality of life and economic prosperity.
  • Best value procurement and standardized contracts to reduce risk.
  • Extending prompt payment provisions to Government of Alberta contracts.
  • Promoting trades education, worker training, recognition of out-of-province credentials, fostering opportunities for people from underrepresented communities and an expanded Provincial Nominee Program.
  • Continued red tape reduction with an emphasis on streamlined permitting and land titles processes.
  • Complete Occupational Health and Safety Code review and more focus on mental health supports to keep workers safe.
  • Review building code changes to ensure safety and affordability.

The ACA release said several meetings with ministers will occur soon and the “Alberta Construction Association and the eight regional construction associations offer their expertise to partner with the Government of Alberta to rapidly implement these directions.”
