Why Join the MHCA?
Government Relations – Promoting Infrastructure Investment
The MHCA maintains excellent relations, access to and influence with all three levels of government. Our accomplishments related to policy and budget are well documented.
Events provide networking and ‘mix ‘n mingle’ opportunities among membership, industry & government.
The Annual Directory and Equipment Rental Rate Guide is the definitive reference guide and business tool used by industry and purchasers of its services.
Weekly Bulletin / Tender Information
The Heavy News Weekly is distributed provincially and nationally to members, the public elected/administrative world and related stakeholder communities.
Our Committees provide members with powerful opportunities to participate in the evolution and development of public policy, changes to regulation, and related industry initiatives.
The WORKSAFELY™ program provides safety, health and environment practices at job sites. The Certificate of Recognition (COR) is reciprocally accepted across Canada.
