In order to build towards a brighter future for Ontario’s society and the economy as we transition past what we hope is the worst of the global pandemic, we strongly recommend the following measures be considered: 

  1. Provide relief for contractors from pandemic related delay claims and unanticipated costs 
  2. Strengthen the province’s workers’ compensation system 
  3. Invest in public infrastructure maintenance and expansion; Deliver fully on your planned Infrastructure Program 
  4. Undertake a review of the Construction Act 
  5. Accelerate the development of Ontario’s new Skilled Trades and Apprenticeship System 
  6. Work with the Federal Government to admit more immigrants with skilled trades qualifications
