Welcome To PCA

Progressive Contractors Association of Canada represents and supports progressive unionized employers in Canada’s construction industry. PCA provides advocacy, labour-management advice, networking opportunities, and organizational services to its member community.

Simply put, we are not anti-union, we are anti-monopoly

Employing more than 20,000 skilled construction workers across Canada, PCA members are recognized as leaders in industrial, commercial, institutional, and heavy civil construction and maintenance.

 

We are the builders of Canada’s natural resource industries, roads and bridges, pipelines, water and wastewater treatment facilities, schools, hospitals, and the commercial buildings that form the backbone of our economy.

 

 

The unique and strong partnership our companies enjoy with their employees and the close collaboration of the progressive labour model gives PCA members a distinct productivity and safety advantage over the competition. In short, we are building Canada together.

Action & Advocacy

We’re stepping up our efforts to raise greater awareness about the issues and projects that matter to our members. When it needs to be said, we’re making sure we’re heard.

Member Services

PCA’s comprehensive suite of advisory services helps our member companies turn those challenges into competitive advantage.

Our Vision

The PCA vision for fair and open construction competition is well-suited to help governments and the private sector meet Canada’s fiscal and economic challenges.
