ACA Calls for Hospital Project Payments to be Issued

In a letter dated April 5, 2019, ACA and our eight local member associations, have called on the Infrastructure Minister to resolve the issue of non payment to contractors over the Grande Prairie hospital project. This delay, up to 300 days late for some contractors, is putting the financial survival and livelihoods at risk.

Our member firms and associations appreciate the opportunity to work with the Province of Alberta to build the schools, hospitals, and other public structures that serve their fellow Albertans. They often do so under challenging circumstances yet they rarely complain or seek the limelight.

However, our associations have grown increasingly concerned about the financial impacts of the unresolved payments from the Grande Prairie hospital project.

We feel compelled to speak out on behalf of our members, their employees and their families.
