Canadian Construction Association (CCA)

CCA joined the picture in Ottawa in 1918. About 200 energetic industry leaders met and their collaboration sowed the seeds of today's association. They wanted to improve conditions and inform people about the industry - and they succeeded.

They used their collective strength to shine a light on industry relationships and practices, standards for business ethics, education and labour matters. Their efforts have had a powerful voice and a source of support for the Canadian industry.

Today, construction is a gigantic industry that touches the life of every person in Canada. It's a deeply entrenched and important part of our history, yet stretches dynamically into our future.
