The Youth Employment Program, It's a WIN WIN!

The CCA's Youth Employment Program (YEP) has 40 pre-screened youth that are ready to work for you.

YEP has worked diligently to recruit these eager, motivated and job ready candidates. At this time, YEP asks for CCA member support and assistance in helping place these participants in a three-week work placement with the intent for full time employment. There is no commitment to hire and no fees for YEP’s services.

CCA currently has youth interested in the following trades:

* Electrical               * Painting
* Plumbing               * Glazing
* Welding                  * Roofing
* Carpentry              * Sprinkler Fitting
* Concrete Finishing

Make a difference in a young person’s life. It’s a “WIN WIN”!

For your next hire, please contact Toni, CCA's Youth Employment Coordinator today!

Special Presentation by LCI-C - "Lean Advancements Are Being Made"

In this economy, now more than ever, is the need to begin thinking and implementing "Lean" - it can make the difference between profit and loss!

One of the great reasons to use a Lean Coffee is to learn and support each other in Lean endeavors. Mixed groups and company groups meet to get help, test ideas and share progress of adopting a Lean strategy. Lean Coffee is a “free space” for people to get to explore issues and concerns that they otherwise don't get to discuss. This free space gives people a chance to try out behaviors, exercise leadership, get help, give help and grow professionally.

Join us on Friday, December 9th, 2016 
7:30 AM - 9:30 AM

Join This Complimentary Session - CoP Hosts " Lean Coffee" AND MORE

ACA Policy – 
“Social Procurement/Community Benefits”

Under Industry Practices, the Board approved a new policy entitled “Social Procurement / Community Benefits” as follows:

“ACA is opposed to using the procurement of construction services to advance unrelated community benefits and other public policy objectives where they jeopardize the integrity of the competitive bid system”.

Social procurement is being discussed at all levels of Government. Federally, the Canadian Construction Association has testified on Bill C-227, An Act to amend the Department of Public Works and Government Services Act (community benefit), currently being reviewed by the House of Commons Standing Committee on Transport, Infrastructure, and Communities.
