Victoria, BC—CLAC and the Progressive Contractors Association of Canada (PCA) join together to share with government ministers, MLAs, and senior staff about the virtues and benefits of the open managed site model (OMS). This model was used on some of BC’s largest civil infrastructure projects, such as the Port Mann Bridge, South Fraser Perimeter Road, and Sea-to-Sky Highway, and is currently being used at Site C.
Key Successes of OMS:
- Maximizes the number of British Columbians who can work on BC projects
- Develops apprentices and works with First Nations
- Brings value to taxpayers by making BC projects competitive on the international field
