NTCCC Applauds Federal Initiative to Establish COVID-19 Response Construction Sector Advisory Group

The National Trade Contractors Council of Canada (NTCCC) is thanking the federal government for establishing a joint government-industry advisory group to deal with construction sector challenges in light of disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. “Trade contractors are facing multiple challenges in light of this pandemic,” said Sandra Skivsky, Chair of NTCCC. “Provinces are addressing the sector differently, and new developments are happening by the hour, but we hope this group will be able to work through common issues like cash flow and contract terms. The federal government can set the standard for provinces to mirror.”
