Ontario General Contractors Association

For new members or those who were not already aware, the OGCA acts on behalf of all of our members on tender issues. This service is provided to members that bring bidding related matters to the attention of the OGCA. The association, in turn, writes to the buyers of construction on behalf of all members and the general contracting industry as a whole, to ensure that tendering language and practices are kept transparent and balanced.

Industry News
The ready mixed concrete industry in Ontario has been experiencing unprecedented challenges when it comes to the supply of the raw materials required to produce concrete in 2022. The demand for construction materials remains at an all-time high, both in Ontario and in the adjacent provinces and states that we border, and global supply chain issues, combined with equipment and labour shortages, are having a very detrimental impact on our industry's ability to meet all the concrete needs in the Ontario marketplace.

Don’t let water damage sideline your construction project
Northbridge Insurance®
Severe water damage can cause several challenges for construction companies. Related project delays can translate into increased costs in labour and materials and can also drive up financing costs from lenders to finish the project, heavily impacting developers’ bottom lines. The reality is that water damage during the construction stage of a building is one of the largest risks to completing a project on time and on budget.

This state of inflation, the highest in 40 years, is not showing any sign of improving, and there will be greater pressure on the entire construction and development stakeholder chain. It is becoming essential to move money more efficiently and consider finance alternatives and the use of technology.

The Canadian Construction Documents Committee (CCDC) is hard at work updating or delivering new documents and guides in 2022 that fairly balance terms for all parties involved in a project. While highly anticipated by the community, we understand that it can take some time to adjust to new documents and guides. On that note, the updated CCDC 2 – 2020 ‘Stipulated Price Contract’, released in December 2020, will replace the retired 2008 version on June 30. After an 18-month transition period, CCDC 2 - 2008 will no longer be available on CCDC’s website.
