MCAC was pleased to join its CIPH colleagues last week for another very successful Day on the Hill. Members met with Parliamentarians to reiterate the importance of prompt payment in Canada's construction industry, as well as the harmonization of codes. Members also stressed how skilled training will be integral in order to meet the anticipated demand for skilled workers in the industry.

The Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada (MCAC) is holding its first national innovation conference this month focused on converting innovative ideas and opportunities into reality.
At the MCA Canada mid-year board meetings, president Jack Bavis and the board of directors announced the ALS Society of Alberta as the charity of choice for this year. The decision was made in honour of past-president David Flamand's sister Patsy Brooks.
"Today brought out a lot of emotions for me," said Flamand. "I hope we can raise some extra money this year for this very important cause. The ALS Society is an extremely important foundation, and I want to thank MCAC for this decision."
"My sister would always say that 'what we do in this life matters.' This support can do just that. It matters."
