NLCA is consistently advocating on behalf of the commercial and industrial construction industry in Newfoundland and Labrador with all three levels of government. NLCA’s success as an industry advocate and thought leader flows from its ability to engage members on issues that impact them and engage government and other stakeholders on the issues with a view to influencing positive change.
We advocate for our members:
The NLCA meets on a regular basis with municipal, provincial and federal politicians and government officials to ensure that member interests are protected when new policies or programs are developed. Our goal is to ensure that government knows how important your business and the construction industry is to the future of our province.
We have several representatives who have taken on leading roles with the Canadian Construction Industry. We have representatives on the Board of Directors and numerous committees. Their work ensures that the interests of Newfoundland and Labrador members are always protected. We are proud to have won several CCA awards in recognition of our strong leadership and innovation.
All NLCA member firms automatically become members of the Canadian Construction Association.
The NLCA Standard Practices Committee is responsible for the development of recommendations to improve tendering and contracting practices. The Committee promotes improved procedures for tendering, standard contract documents, (CCDC and CCA), and facilitates discussion between other professional organizations in the construction industry.
