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.

By engaging with so many influential officials and elected representatives, CIPH and MCAC were able to drive home our positions on the need for Prompt Payment Legislation and for Uniform and Harmonized Model Codes and Regulations for Canada & Canada/USA. In addition, these meetings served to 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.

 

“This initiative is a powerful demonstration of the strength of CIPH in representing the Industry in front of those making important regulatory decisions that impact all of us. 2017’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, Bill Palamar (Weil McLain Canada).
