Subject Matter Details
Policies or Program
- Canada’s Long-term Infrastructure Plan (LTIP), the federal government should ensure the LTIP is funded for at least 7 years; is funded at a level equivalent to the Building Canada Plan of 2007; and, is announced prior to the expiration of the Building Canada Plan in 2014 to ensure no gaps in funding exist.
- Facilitate discussions with government to see quick implementation of federal infrastructure programs such as the long-term Infrastructure Plan.
- SECURITY CLEARANCES: The Canadian Construction Association has been working with Treasury Board Secretariat and Public Works and Government Services to help simplify the process for contractors to the federal government to obtain security clearances. Currently, when a contractors wish to perform work for the federal government, they must obtain individual clearances from each department they work for. In most cases, the clearances of individual companies and employees are all conducted by the RCMP; however, obtaining a clearance to work for one department is NOT transferable for work done for another department of government. This place a tremendous burden on contractors as they must pay for each individual clearance, in some cases several clearances if they are working for multiple departments at the same time. CCA has been advocating a single government window for security clearances and that these clearances be accepted government wide.
- Skilled Labour Policy: In order to overcome skilled labour scarcity across Canada, the Canadian Construction Association continues to advocate for legislative, regulatory and policy reforms with the intent to promote increased domestic skilled trade and apprenticeship training, as well as facilitate the entry of skilled trade labour under Canadian immigration programs.
