CIPH/MCAC Parliamentary Day of Awareness, May 10th, 2016
April 18, 2016
On Tuesday, May 10th, 2016, CIPH and the Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada will be holding our annual Parliamentary Day of Awareness in Ottawa where we will be discussing the following issues:
ISSUE #1 - Prompt Payment: CIPH and MCAC support the need for Prompt Payment provisions at the federal level. This will benefit all construction industry stakeholders who conduct work and build buildings with, and for, the Federal Government including General Contractors, Trade Contractors, and Suppliers of Building Materials and Equipment. The status quo is not working. This is an opportunity for the Federal Government to assist.
ISSUE #2- Uniform and Harmonized Model Codes and Regulations for Canada: CIPH and MCAC have the best access to information on best practices, emerging technologies and alternative regulatory solutions to ensure there is a harmonized and uniform system of codes in Canada. We are prepared to take on a more consultative role to reduce duplication of efforts in order to increase productivity, speed up regulatory development to match provincial/territorial policy needs and help reduce confusion for consumers and the enforcement bodies.
Objective of the May 10th Parliamentary Day of Awareness: To discuss how Prompt Payment Provisions will help the construction industry and in what way establishing Uniform and Harmonized Model Codes and Regulations for Canada would significantly increase safety, resulting in a substantial cost savings for all stakeholders.
