By Jillian MorganHPAC General
The Canadian Institute of Plumbing and Heating (CIPH) and the Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada (MCAC) once again joined forces in Ottawa.
The two associations held the annual Parliamentary Day of Awareness on April 1 and 2, 2019.
Executives from CIPH and MCAC met with more than 40 officials and elected representatives to “enhance the profile of the industry in government circles.”
Conversations also focused on two “key items of mutual concern,” namely prompt payment provisions in federal contracts and efforts to harmonize model codes and regulations for energy efficiency in Canada.
Members also stressed how skilled training will be integral in order to meet the anticipated demand for skilled workers in the industry, according to MCAC.“This year’s event resulted in new contacts, fresh, innovative ideas and tangible progress on several priority issues for CIPH and MCA Canada,” said Allen Taylor, CIPH chairman. “An outstanding ‘Day on the Hill!’” www.ciph.com www.mcac.ca
