We are the Saskatchewan
Heavy Construction Association

If something big is happening, that’s where you’ll find our members working. If the Earth moved, it was us.


Our members are from all across Saskatchewan and we represent companies large and small. Our members are working on jobsites everywhere in our province and sometimes beyond.

SHCA is a member-driven organization with a board of directors drawn from the membership and a president and staff who work with the board to provide the best representation, advocacy and services to all members.

Originally a local chapter of the Canadian Construction Association, SHCA (formerly the Roadbuilders’ Association) was first formed in 1919 to be a voice for members of the heavy construction industry, as well as a service centre for members to stay current with tenders, technology, regulations and other changes in the industry. We represent heavy construction across Saskatchewan, with over 200 members and growing.

Our Mission

The Saskatchewan Heavy Construction Association is committed to the heavy construction industry by actively promoting quality, cost-effective, socially responsible services for the public and its members.

Our Vision

To grow the association by developing effective affiliations with other groups and associations both inside and outside the industry and by broadening the scope of members to represent all aspects of the industry.

To increase the stability of the association by promoting and supporting strong involvement in the association through their committee opportunities and their social and educational events. Recruiting younger members is considered critical to ensuring the long-term success and vitality of the association.

Ensure long-term success of the association by improving and enhancing the image of the association as the voice of the industry in the province. This will be achieved through becoming more effective as an organization at the committee and staff level as well as through providing outstanding services to members that they truly value.

If the Earth moved, it was us.
