BCCA Official Statements

BCCA shares the Canadian Construction Association’s concerns: the 2024 Federal Budget falls short on a number of policies required to meet the needs of BC’s construction industry, specifically in terms of workforce solutions and infrastructure. Our concern is that demand stimulated by aggressive housing targets and loan programs will surpass the BC construction industry’s current capacity, given inflation as well as our province’s workforce shortages and lack of payment certainty.

We share the Government’s commitment to building housing and infrastructure, but question how realistic this government’s policy strategy really is given workforce shortages and the vulnerable position in which the Government puts BC’s small and medium-sized contractors by failing to enact Prompt Payment Legislation. The 2024 Budget falls short on policies required to meet the needs of the construction industry and get provincial prosperity growing again.

BC Construction Association Responds to Budget 2023

BCCA welcomes investments in labour mobility and training, and improvements in municipal permitting systems, but these are small commitments that will not help to build the strong foundation needed to ensure Canada remains resilient.

Industry is appalled to see the tabling of Bill 10 this week, which seeks to interfere in workforce dynamics to fix a problem that does not exist.

Making sure the construction industry’s priorities are heard by the candidates in the upcoming federal election and the newly elected federal government.
