General Contractors of Canada Form a New Alliance
Montreal, January 18th, 2018 – The Ontario General Contractors Association (OGCA) , the Corporation des entrepreneurs généraux du Québec (CEGQ) and a large number of general contractors from Canada formed an alliance to face several common challenges. The Alliance of General Contractors of Canada (AEGC) will work side by side to improve contract and payout conditions in the construction industry for both provincial and federal jurisdictions.
AEGC commits to advocate at both provincial and federal governments, provincial and national government procurement policies, regulations and legislation when it comes to late payments.
At the federal level, AEGC commits to represent general contractors in the national debate regarding late payments, chaired by the Honorable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Public Services and Procurement (PWGSC).
The new organization will work with all industry stakeholders to find solutions to help productivity and growth of the construction industry.
AEGC has 400 members and continues to grow. Members are general contractors from across the country, from small provincial businesses to large national companies. AEGC represents all general contractors, regardless of size or origin.
