A New Community Building Standard for Canada!

We’re proud to announce the launch of a new Community Building Standard for Canada!

A new Community Building Standard means ensuring infrastructure projects in Canada are built the right way. This means ensuring major projects that are delivered across Canada are focused on three core principles – A commitment to safety and quality, investing in trades and apprenticeships, and leaving a positive community legacy.

Safety and Quality are in everything we build. Projects need to be built to the highest environmental standards so that future generations feel a sense of pride knowing that they are protected from any risk. If we build it right, we can ensure that Indigenous people, women, and youth get the opportunities they deserve to develop valuable skills and create an impactful legacy in their communities.

When we’re investing in trades and apprenticeships, and when we make local hiring and apprentice training a priority, communities are stronger.

Community legacy means ensuring our work delivers a legacy that makes a long-term difference to each community where we have a presence.

The Community Building Standard has been initiated across Canada by our founding partners: Labourers’ International Union of North America (LiUNA), Canadian Piping Trades, Teamsters Canada and the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE).
