Spring 2021 Construction Review

This Spring 2021 edition of the SICA Construction Review magazine has a collection of informative, inspiring, and insightful articles. Our theme for this edition focused around the strength of construction and how construction impacts our communities. This impact is evident by the fact that construction in BC, and many other provinces across Canada, was declared an essential service during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Construction’s impact cannot be ignored as the sector represents contributes 8.9% to BC’s GDP and employs more than 205,000 people in British Columbia (BCCA Fall 2020 Stat Pack). As has been true throughout history, construction will be a vital piece of rebuilding our economy in the coming years.  

As always, SICA is here to help our members face the challenges of the market, to provide leadership to our members and the industry as a whole.  

Every day our staff and board are working to better the construction industry and enable your business success. Not all of this work is tangible, but the value it provides to the construction industry is palpable. We could not do this important work without the support of our members, and for this support we couldn’t be more grateful.  

SICA enables your business’ growth through networking, tendering assistance, leadership and management courses, safety consulting and training. In the past year our team has pushed boundaries and moved much of our programming online, which will allow us to serve our large region better going into the future.  

Thank you for allowing SICA to contribute to your success in 2021!
