VRCA Unveils Reconciliation Action Plan through the Bridging Perspectives Webinar Series

VANCOUVER, BC – Friday, January 19, 2024 – The Vancouver Regional Construction Association is pleased to announce that it is embarking on a journey to deepen our understanding of reconciliation within the context of the construction industry.

As a responsible and forward-thinking organization, we recognize the importance of acknowledging and learning about our collective histories in Canada. This initiative is a testament to our commitment to fostering positive relationships and creating a more inclusive and equitable construction community.

Over the next six months, VRCA members will be invited to attend the Bridging Perspectives Webinar series, which is comprised of six dynamic sessions featuring thought-provoking discussions, practical insights, and insight from industry leaders and Indigenous communities. The sessions will cover various topics, including cultural awareness, Indigenous engagement, procurement opportunities, and building lasting partnerships.

“We understand that this is a continuous and evolving process, and we are committed to learning, growing, and fostering positive change within our association and the broader construction industry,” said VRCA President Jeannine Martin.

Through this journey, the VRCA hopes to build a better tomorrow, strengthen relationships, and play a role in advancing the important work of reconciliation in Canada.
