ACA sends letter of support to Alberta Government

The Alberta Construction Association sent a letter of support last week to the new government.  The letter outlined past successes working with government in areas of mutual interest and concern.  As well as the willingness of the organization to meet with Premier Notley and her team in the coming weeks to offer our support during the transition.

The ACA continues to be the voice of the construction industry (Commercial, Institutional, and light Industrial) with the government of Alberta and will look forward to continuing to build on that successful and long lasting relationship.

Alberta Construction Association Congratulates Rachel Notley on Being Elected Premier

“The Alberta Construction Association congratulates Rachel Notley on being elected as Premier, and her party as government, yesterday,” says Dave Kinley, Chairman of the ACA.

The Alberta Construction Association continues to assert the importance of predictable funding for infrastructure, a solid commitment to develop the future of our workforce, and ensuring the government is a preferred client for our members.

“Over the next four years we look forward to continuing to work with the Alberta government on the issues that are important to our industry and Albertans in general,” said Kinley.

The 3000 plus members of the Alberta Construction Association support a prosperous Alberta economy and the well being of Albertans by constructing schools, health care facilities, roads and other infrastructure.  Alberta’s construction industry employs over 270,000 people and contributes over $50 billion annually to Alberta’s economy.
