The Ontario caucus of the National Trade Contractors Coalition of Canada (of which MCA Canada is a
founding member), together with other industry organizations in Ontario, has developed a petition, the results of which will be forwarded on to the Ontario legislature. If you are a contractor from Ontario, please take just a minute to complete the following petition and submit it by clicking the green "sign" button. If you are a contractor outside of Ontario, you can complete the petition and submit it as well. This will illustrate that the support is Canada wide! The more signatures the better!
