Advocacy Initiatives

Our unique place in the industry allows the concerns of even our smallest members to be heard. We continue to address relevant topics locally, provincially through the BC Construction Association and nationally through the Canadian Construction Association.

  • SICA supports members to local buyers of construction with respect to transparent and equitable procurement
  • We are a collective voice on behalf of the industry promoting fair tendering practices
  • We believe in educating the industry on construction best practices

These are the current initiatives we and our partners are working on.
