MCA Manitoba and MCA Canada will co-host an event in Winnipeg tomorrow to explore current industry issues, as well as strategies to mitigate those "mechanical contractor migraines."
Featuring a great lineup of speakers and topics, the program will look at issues such as labour force demand, supply chain issues, supplementary general conditions in contracts, net zero and the impact on the sector, and the role of collaborative contracting methods.
Open to all MCA Manitoba and MCA Canada members, this event is not to be missed.

Poorly written specifications may force bidders to guess what the customer wants. Public or private procurement should not be in the guessing game.
The MCA Canada Jobsite Journal is a daily log to help track projects, including:
- site conditions,
- weather conditions,
- productivity/time loss and reasons,
- area/work in progress,
- subtrade reports,
- daily report reminders,
- and more.
Daily and Weekly Reports track work site conditions, progress and delays which prevent costly claims. The Daily Reports record work site conditions and progress, while the Weekly Reports detail delays and provide space to give a more specific explanation of that week's progress.
For MCA Canada members, this valuable tool is available for only $11.50.
