Networking & Events

CCA Christmas Social
How we will put you in the jolly spirit!

The only way to get a group of Canadians together is through a hockey game or a fountain of maple syrup. We at the CCA can't provide either but we still want our members to get together for some holiday fun! We guarantee being a guest at our holiday party will be a blast! But how will we put you in the jolly spirit, you may be asking yourself?

First, we guarantee that we will have a good looking crowd of people. We can’t provide face lifts or plastic surgery but we will provide booze. It is a scientific fact that the more booze one drinks the more attractive everyone becomes. So put on your beer goggles and enjoy the facts that not only are people better looking (including yourself) but also that the drinks are on us.

Second, as construction workers we are well skilled at building structures, but it can be harder for us to build a social network. We all know having a network is critical for anyone's business. At this holiday party you will create great business connections as well as lifelong friends. That is, if you don’t make too much of a fool out of yourself ... Fab ;)

Lastly, don’t be a Scrooge! Enjoy the holiday cheer with like-minded people while savoring some great drinks and appetizers. It beats hanging out with the in-laws and will give you the perfect excuse for leaving work early!
