The National Trade Contractors Council of Canada (NTCCC) provided a written submission to the federal government in advance of the 2021 Federal Budget.
In the submission, NTCCC provided three recommendations:
- 1. NTCCC strongly recommends that the federal government accelerate the delivery of infrastructure investments to stimulate the economy and create immediate jobs.
- 2. NTCCC recommends that the federal government invest in training opportunities to increase the skillset of workers in the skilled trades and invest in programs to promote careers in these trades, including incentives for employers to create new apprenticeship opportunities.
- 3. NTCCC recommends that the federal government promptly move to introduce regulations for the Federal Prompt Payment for Construction Work Act and bring the Act into force.
