The CCA Civil Infrastructure Award of Recognition recognizes a CCA member for their commitment and dedication to the Canadian construction industry and the road building and heavy construction sector. 

2013 Award Recipient – Wayne Morsky, Industrial Services Ltd. 

This gentleman began working for his family’s business at the age of thirteen.  Now President and CEO of a thriving infrastructure development operation that for 55 years been involved in diverse sectors of the industry, including general contracting, highway construction, railway maintenance, industrial services, HySpeed soil nailing, and oil and gas development, his passion for family and business is evident.

Graduating from Red River College’s Business Administration program in 1981, he not only devoted himself to his family’s business, but also to his industry as he founded the Regina chapter of the Canadian Association of Family Enterprise (CAFE). He has also served as President of the Roadbuilders and Heavy Construction Association of Saskatchewan, the Chair of the Western Canadian Roadbuilders Association, and was also Chair of the Canadian Construction Association.

In his years at CCA leading up to his Chairmanship, this gentleman was an active part of several CCA councils in committees, including the Environment Committee, the Gold Seal Committee, and the Roadbuilders Council (now the Civil Infrastructure Council).

He was instrumental in pursuit of a long-term federal infrastructure program representing the CCA at the first national infrastructure summit held in Regina in January 2010. He has also been a strong proponent of enhancing industry engagement with aboriginal communities to promote careers in construction to aboriginal youth. 

His pursuit of excellence can be seen through his Gold Seal certified status, his firm’s numerous awards for innovation, environmental achievement and project of the year. He was also awarded with Red River College’s Distinguished Alumni Award for both his leadership in the industry and the community, sharing his philosophy on community service with the comment that  “when you give bread, it comes back buttered.” 

For his many contributions to the Civil Infrastructure Council, the Canadian Construction Association and to the construction industry as a whole, CCA is proud to recognize Wayne Morsky as the recipient of the Civil Infrastructure Award of Recognition.
