Canadian Construction Productivity Initiative

Canada is a centre of excellence in construction innovation. To stay globally competitive, we need to put our pioneering knowledge of best practices to work — seeking processes to ensure safety, keep quality high, and bring costs down.

The industry-led Canadian Construction Productivity Initiative is defining what productivity means for Canada’s construction and maintenance industry. Through awareness-raising, education and sharing of leading/best practices, our goal is to make productivity a core value of the industry — at the heart of how we work, and key to our sustained competitiveness in the global marketplace.

We all have a part to play. Get involved! Become more productive and help keep our industry competitive.
