CCA membership

How to become a CCA member

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 63 local and provincial integrated partner associations.

Different types of CCA membership

Learn more about integrated membership and corporate membership. In addition to these membership types, CCA also works in partnership with affiliate associations. These are for example national associations representing several provinces. Unlike integrated partner associations, members of CCA’s affiliate partner associations don’t become CCA members. Search affiliated members
