Tsuut'ina Nation Youth & Adult Career Fair

CCA was pleased to have participated in partnership with EllisDon at the Tsuut'ina Nation Youth & Adult Career Fair which was held on November 23rd. The theme was “Passport top Opportunity” and hosted a morning dedicated primarily to youth, followed by an afternoon geared towards adults. Positive messages were given by the Tsuut'ina Nation council, followed by interactions at various employer booth displays. A networking session took place during the lunch hour with the Tsuut'ina leadership and vendors around initiatives to hire the Tsuut'ina Nation youth.
CCA is working in conjunction with the Canadian Construction Association's initiative to engage with indigenous people while providing meaningful career opportunities for First Nations individuals.

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

You don't want to miss out!

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

Alberta Construction Association News

On November 16-17th ACA Executive Director Ken Gibson and Safety WCB committee member Dave Hagan participated at a meeting for the WCB Review. They expressed concerns to the WCB Review committee over process and progress of the review so far.

During the meeting ACA argued:

•Against WCB benefits including salary or career progression in the review consultations

•We also disagreed with expanding presumptive coverage as it contradicts requirement for WCB to make evidence based decisions

•Opposed adding requirement to accommodate to the WCB Act. The appropriate dispute resolution mechanism is under human rights legislation

•No fault should not apply to post-incident behaviours and TTD should not apply if the worker actions remove themselves from the course of employment

•That Appeals Commission should only rule on the specifics of the appeal, and not be wide open in its decisions

•The Employer Appeals Advisors should be independent of the WCB

•The need for in-person multi stakeholder consultation on policy development and review

•For the retention of PIR incentives and experience rating at the WCB Review

The committee is preparing its report in January 2017 for the government.
