ABOUT

The MHCA is the recognized voice of the heavy construction industry in Manitoba, promoting sustainable investment in core infrastructure – highways, streets, bridges, sewer & water and water-control structures – to support economic growth benefiting our province and country in a manner consistent with the broad public interest.

Established in 1943, the MHCA represents approximately 400 members, including contractors, suppliers and associated financial and bonding companies. We are led by a vision & mandate that challenge us to champion public policies and develop innovative programs that produce groundbreaking results for members and industry.

Our advocacy is based on six principles for strategic infrastructure investment, rooted in and built upon by a record laid down by past board Chairs and members.

The MHCA is an active, valued member of the Canadian Construction Association and the Western Canada Roadbuilders & Heavy Construction Association, through which our advocacy has had and continues to have national profile and impact.

Through constructive partnerships and engagement with our members, government, media and the general public, the MHCA has forged a reputation of one of the most effective advocacy groups in Manitoba.

Our WORKSAFELY™ program has set an industry standard in workplace safety and health services, copied by others now developing industry-based programs.
