CCA Update March 18, 2020
Dear Members and Colleagues,
Another day, more developments and more questions. We are continuing to reach out
across the industry in order to learn what we can. With many questions and concerns
arising daily we are continually looking for ways to assist members in finding answers or
Yesterday morning we held our inaugural HR call and we will be continuing these
throughout this week. Our Business Hub is co-hosting an online Zoom chat from 9:00 –
10:00 AM for business owners, managers and supervisors with Michelle Berg of Elevated
HR where she will take your questions – register here and feel free to join in any of them
this week. Feel free to call in every day if you wish.
Yesterday we were joined by 17 members and were able to cover a number of questions
at the forefront of everybody’s minds. We will be posting transcripts of each conversation
as they are available.
Today we are also hosting our first conference call with industry leaders and will continue
with that every two days in order to stay on top of developments and provide as much
insight as possible.
We have also reached out to those in both the legal, financial and insurance community
and hope to have resources available to answer your questions and provide insight into
these important areas shortly.
We also have calls scheduled with the Canadian Construction Association later this week
from a national perspective.
We will continue posting content as it emerges along with several resources daily on our
CCA update tab of the website. Make that link one of your favourites and keep

A pandemic is not selective – it will hit us all and it will continue to evolve over the days
to come. We can only plan around what we know and these plans need to be able to adapt
to the 12hr cycle of new information and changing constraints which is why CCA is
seeking to foster so many resource channels to help inform us all.
Our community is rising to this challenge. We are best equipped if we respond as one
industry and one community and this is happening.
We have also been in contact with ACA who have been in conference calls with the
province and we will update you on the results of these conversations today.
Each day seems to feel like a week and this is bearing down hard on us all but we will
emerge from this and in the meantime CCA will do our best to support you all
