CCA Membership

Join the National Voice for the Canadian Construction Industry

Canadian Construction Association (CCA) is the national voice for the Canadian construction industry representing companies working in all four segments of non-residential construction:

    • Industrial construction (i.e. warehouses, manufacturing plants, oil refineries, smelters, lumber and pulp and paper mills, hydro-electric plant and water treatment facilities);
    • Institutional construction (i.e. schools, hospitals, colleges and universities, as well as other government facilities used to deliver public services);
    • Commercial construction (i.e. banks, restaurants, shopping malls, as well as office buildings and condominiums); and
    • Civil engineering construction (i.e. dams, highways, roads, public transit systems, and the underground infrastructure necessary to remove sewage and deliver water, electricity and telecommunications to our homes and businesses).

In total, CCA represents more than 20,000 members drawn from 64 local and provincial integrated partner associations.

CCA is an association driven by its members. Through their participation in various CCA committees and councils and through representation in our board, our members provide us direction and guidance and give us the mandate to speak out on the issues and concerns affecting them.

How to Become a CCA Member

There are two ways that you can become a member of CCA.

    1. Integrated Member: Check to see if your local or provincial construction association is a member of CCA. If so, by joining one of these associations, you automatically become a member of CCA. A percentage of the membership fees that you pay to the local or provincial association will be remitted to CCA to cover our membership fees.
    2. Corporate Member: CCA corporate membership provides instant acknowledgement by industry members and peers that your firm is a recognized national leader in your sector of the construction industry. Aside from the benefits of being a CCA member, there are additional incentives for choosing a corporate membership.

Affiliate Associations

CCA’s also works in partnership with a number of affiliate associations. These are for example national associations representing a number for provinces. Unlike Integrated Association Partners, members of CCA’s Affiliate Association Partners don’t become CCA members and CCA membership benefits listed above only apply to the association.
