Parliamentary Day of Awareness
CIPH and the Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada (MCAC) hold an annual Parliamentary Day of Awareness each year in Ottawa. On this day, key executives of both associations meet with senior officials and Parliamentarians to enhance the profile of the industry in government circles and discuss key items of mutual concern.
Key Issues Discussed During Day of Awareness Held on May 9 & 10, 2016:
Parliamentarians and other key officials that were met with included:
By engaging with so many influential officials and elected representatives, CIPH and MCAC were able to drive home our positions on Prompt Payment Provisions and Uniform and Harmonized Model Codes and Regulations as well as further reinforce the status of both associations as the “go-to voice” for regulators, government officials and other key influencers who deal with issues affecting our industry.
Bill S-224, the Canada Prompt Payment Act, reached second reading in the Senate on April 19th.
“This initiative is a powerful demonstration of the strength of CIPH in representing the Voice of the Industry in front of those making important regulatory decisions that impact all of us. This year’s event resulted in new contacts, fresh, innovative ideas and tangible progress on several priority issues for CIPH and MCA Canada. An outstanding ‘Day on the Hill’!” – CIPH Chairman, Siân Smith (Noble Corporation).
