British Columbia has approximately $261 billion in proposed construction projects on its books. B.C.’s construction industry, which comprises nearly 25,500 companies, employs more than 242,000 men and women and contributes almost nine per cent to the provincial gross domestic product, delivers roughly $15 billion in completed projects each year.
As B.C.’s oldest and largest construction association, the Vancouver Regional Construction Association (VRCA) represents the general and trade contractors, manufacturers, suppliers and various professional services providers who operate in the industrial, commercial and institutional construction industry in the Lower Mainland.
As such, VRCA publicly takes positions and speaks out on business issues that impact its members positively or negatively while remaining non-partisan.
It partners with the British Columbia Construction Association (BCCA), the Canadian Construction Association (CCA) and other stakeholders as appropriate, to amplify its advocacy voice and influence provincial and national conversations on issues affecting the local construction industry.
