How we advocate
VRCA advocates on the industry issues that are keeping you up at night, speaking out on business issues that impact its members while remaining non-partisan. At the grassroots level, VRCA represents the general and trade contractors, manufacturers, suppliers and various professional service providers who operate in the industrial, commercial, institutional construction and high-rise residential sectors in the Lower Mainland.
Through VRCA’s partnership with the British Columbia Construction Association (BCCA), the Canadian Construction Association (CCA) and other stakeholders as appropriate, VRCA is amplifying its voice and influencing provincial and national conversations on issues affecting the local construction industry.
