WCR&HCA updates, revises website as an advocacy resource to industry

The Western Canada Roadbuilders & Heavy Construction Association has updated its website so members can easily access important reports to stay abreast of industry issues and to inform advocacy across the region and on a national level.

“The website is now a convenient resource for the four Western heavy construction associations and the entire industry, clearly outlining the value and the work of the WCR&HCA,” said Chris Lorenc, WCR&HCA President. “The website will become increasingly important to the association’s work, especially as we are in the midst of planning a future conference.”

The website spells out the mission and vision of the WCR&HCA, a history of its work since 1943 and the materials out of successive annual general meetings.

“I encourage all members, as well, to become familiar with the extensive collection of national and regional reports that show the verified, high-value economic returns from strategic investment in transportation infrastructure, in particular trade-enabling infrastructure,” said Lorenc.

“This is the hard evidence that supports our advocacy provincially, regionally and nationally for sustained core infrastructure investment plans and programs.”

Those reports are available at the Briefs and Reports tab.
