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.

BCCA supports the statement from our colleagues at the Canadian Construction Association (CCA)

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.
