Trade contractors to form chapters
Move to increase influence at the local level announced by NTCCC
June 3, 2014
Members of the National Trade Contractors Coalition of Canada (NTCCC) recently approved a bylaw change that would allow for the establishment of provincial/territorial NTCCC chapters across Canada. “With this new development, we can see local trade contractor groups becoming more organized and, as a consequence, more influential vis-à- vis local industry issues as they specifically relate to trade contractors. It is important for trade contractors to have their own voice, and not have others speak on behalf of the entire construction industry,” said John Blair, NTCCC director and chairman of the Ontario caucus of NTCCC.
NTCCC will be submitting new bylaw changes to Industry Canada by October 17, 2014 in compliance with the new Canada Corporations Act.
The National Trade Contractors Coalition of Canada (NTCCC) was established in 2004 to provide an organized forum for Canada’s national trade organizations to share information, resources, and to collaborate on issues that are of common interest all. The membership is currently comprised of: Canadian Roofing Contractors Association, Canadian Automatic Sprinkler Association, Canadian Masonry Contractors Association, Canadian Electrical Contractors Association, Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada, Interior Systems Contractors Association, Thermal Insulation Association of Canada, Heating Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Institute of Canada-Contractors Division, Sheet-Metal Contractors Association, Canadian Institute of Steel Construction, Canadian Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute and the Tile, Terrazzo, and Marble Guild.
