Strong advocacy, from Emerson to Churchill
Our members are the lifeblood of the heavy construction industry. When we speak, the province, the cities and all municipalities in Manitoba pay attention because they know we represent your views and your interests.
Manitobans know the economic impact and value of our industry, employing (directly and indirectly) about 15,000 people.
MHCA is often referred to as the strongest lobby voice in Manitoba. Association President, Chris Lorenc is a regular fixture in newspapers, television newscasts and government chambers, advocating for the industry.
We’ve invested 75 years in becoming the voice, the experts and the momentum behind the industry. Here are some of our advocacy priorities:

- Pushing for infrastructure budgets that are:
- Permanent programs

- Harnessing the private sector
- Funded by dedicated revenue streams
- Reviewed annually
- Promoting procurement strategies that enable Manitoba contractors to grow capacity
- Pressing for improved municipal procurement
