On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the COVID-19 virus a worldwide pandemic. Governments in Canada and its provinces, and across the world are declaring states of emergency and implementing dramatic health and safety measures daily.

What Has Been Said

 

DavePawslaski

ASL Paving Ltd. has been a member of the SHCA since ASL was incorporated in 1950. Membership allows ASL Paving Ltd. to join effectively with others in our industry in order to present issues and concerns related to roadbuilding and heavy construction with a unified voice. The SHCA is an organization that enjoys respect with our key clients and stakeholders, allowing the organization to be among the first to be consulted when issues arise.

The most valuable aspect of membership is the connectivity it gives our managers on keeping track of what is happening in our industry. Knowing what jobs are out for tender and the bid results are a key reason why we have kept our membership. In addition to the daily tender information, we have an opportunities to keep connected with our suppliers at SHCA functions such as golf tournaments and the annual convention.

—David Paslawski, President, ASL Paving Ltd.
 

SHCA unites our industry to represent common issues we, as contractors, face in the changing business environment. One of the most valuable aspects of our membership has been the opportunity to be a part of a strong lobby voice within the province. Additionally, we’ve had better access to safety and other training programs for our employees as a result of our participation in the association over the years.

— Kelly Panteluk, Owner, Kelly Panteluk Construction Ltd.
