BCCA Response to Federal Budget 2024

BCCA shares the Canadian Construction Association’s concerns: the 2024 Federal Budget falls short on a number of policies required to meet the needs of BC’s construction industry, specifically in terms of workforce solutions and infrastructure. Our concern is that demand stimulated by aggressive housing targets and loan programs will surpass the BC construction industry’s current capacity, given inflation as well as our province’s workforce shortages and lack of payment certainty.

BCCA Response to BC Budget 2024

We share the Government’s commitment to building housing and infrastructure, but question how realistic this government’s policy strategy really is given workforce shortages and the vulnerable position in which the Government puts BC’s small and medium-sized contractors by failing to enact Prompt Payment Legislation. The 2024 Budget falls short on policies required to meet the needs of the construction industry and get provincial prosperity growing again.
