Canadian governments have been slow to share their plans for infrastructure investments as part of Canada’s recovery.
We need your support to tell your representatives that it’s time to take action!
In order to push the federal government and provincial governments to prioritize infrastructure investments to fuel Canada’s economic recovery, AED has organized a coalition of construction sector groups to deliver the industry’s message to policymakers.
The Build for Recovery campaign is a grassroots effort to highlight the need for robust infrastructure investments to create jobs and economic growth across Canada.
In addition to AED, partners include the Canadian Construction Association, Association of Consulting Engineering Companies – Canada, The Canadian Council for Public-Private Partnerships and National Trade Contractors Coalition of Canada.
„The importance of engaging elected officials cannot be overstated,” said AED’s President & CEO Brian P. McGuire.
„As demonstrated when AED members heeded the association’s call to action to secure critical changes to the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy, the industry can make a difference. There’s no better way to get the Canadian economy going again than building infrastructure projects, and the construction sector and its employees must participate in the Building for Recovery campaign.”
The Build for Recovery website (www.buildforrecovery.ca) makes it as easy as possible to weigh-in with your elected officials about the importance of prioritizing infrastructure investment. All it takes is 30 seconds of your time to fill out a web form and send an email directly to your provincial and federal elected officials.
Visit Build for Recovery today to tell the government that the construction industry is ready to rebuild the country and the economy better than ever!
