PCA member companies employ over 20,000 skilled workers across Canada, represented primarily by the Christian Labour Association of Canada (CLAC).
We advance the interests of our members in three ways:
Advocacy: serving as the public voice to government influencers, construction owners, industry groups and the media on the benefits of “open site” construction, and the key issues of interest to our members.
Advice: providing members with best-practice know-how in a variety of areas, including government relations, labour relations, media relations and construction safety, as well as numerous sector-specific issues.
Services: developing and delivering group programs and benefits, including safety and skill training, which provide a competitive advantage to our members.
To bridge the gap for people looking for a career in Skilled Trades, link Journeyman, Apprentices and Pre-Apprentices, through the CLAC Employment Services Program. The PCA member employers hire graduates from recognised training centers which include the OEL Pre-Apprenticeship Training Institute in Toronto, Merit Ontario Pre-Apprenticeship Training Institute in Toronto and the CLAC Pre-Apprenticeship Training Institute in Cambridge. PCA members hire graduates from recognised training facilities because our contractors are involved in the development and approval of all trainning and safety standards.
PCA Joblink Portal
The PCA Joblink Portal is an important resource as it serves to bridge the gap between PCA employers looking to hire and Pre-Apprentices, Apprentices and Journeyman accross Ontario.
