TRUST-BASED PARTNERING – A BENEFIT OF ETHICS
“Construction Industry Ethics Course now available”

During the 2015 OAEC Workshop held at the BMO Centre on Stampede Park in Calgary, it became evident by the conversations that “TRUST” is the number one issue for the OAEC business communities who work together in partnership to build Calgary. 
BuildForce Canada, formerly known as the Construction Sector Council, has completed and is now offering a new CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY ETHICS course via local construction associations across Canada. This course is mandatory for Gold Seal Certification as of January 2017.

Register online to obtain your E-Learning PIN at a cost of $200, or register for the combo classroom and E-Learning (three Gold Seal credits) for a discounted price of $375.

The Lean Construction Institute - Canada (LCI-C) was founded to develop and disseminate knowledge regarding the management of work and projects. The practices flowing from this research often appear counter-intuitive. They call for a new common sense, a shared understanding in the community — where else, how else could sense become common?

Alberta Construction Association News

ACA has sent a letter to the Canadian International Trade Tribunal expressing our concern around the increase of tariff to gypsum being imported from the USA.

Our concerns are as follows:
1.The cost increases may hurt our suppliers and our     industry in general if they are varying dramatically       across our industry.
  2.If we have a shortage, this will create basic supply     problems for the industry and schedule and cost         overruns for current projects.
  3.The cost increases would have to be passed on to the   customer in succeeding contracts which may significantly   impact government funded infrastructure projects.

ACA also explained that we hope that these changes will be kept from causing undo pain for our industry in a time where we are struggling to keep our businesses and employees in their jobs.
