MCA Canada and the National Trade Contractors Coalition of Canada (NTCCC) issue call for signatures to support legislation.
The Mechanical Contractors of Canada (MCA Canada,) in partnership with the National Trade Contractors Coalition of Canada (NTCCC), is spearheading a push for Federal Prompt Payment Legislation that would affect federal government projects. As a result of its efforts, Brad Butt, Conservative MP, from Mississauga, ON, has agreed to present a petition on Prompt Payment every day in the House of Commons until the summer recess, provided MCA and NTCCC get the required number of signatures on each form.
What steps can you take?
1- Download and print the petition.
2- Gather 25 legitimate signatures, signed in ink.
Ask your office staff, subcontractors, suppliers, field employees, your families, and anyone affected by payment delays, to sign the petition and add their name, city and province. If you can collect more than 25 signatures, print and start a new petition.
3- Once you have collected the 25 valid signatures and address on each page (there must be 25 signatures), the petition must be mailed to (via traditional mail): Impact Public Affairs, 300 – 66 Queen St., Ottawa, ON K1P 5C6, Attention: Rob Leforte.
Note: The Federal Government will not accept faxes or e-mails. It must be the original document.
