CANADA'S CONSTRUCTION ECONOMISTS CALL FOR URGENT REFORMS IN THE FACE OF THE AFFORDABILITY AND HOUSING CRISIS
A team of CIQS ambassador members led by chief executive officer Sheila Lennon, held a press conference on Parliament Hill on October 23, 2023 as part of the fall Day on the Hill, pointing to the federal government's gaps in ensuring Canada's future infrastructure adheres to contemporary, cost-efficient, and eco-friendly standards.
“Our role is crucial in optimizing developers' time, funds, and resources,” said CIQS vice-chair, Tammy Stockley, PQS(F). “Investments should assure costs and deliver maximum value to taxpayers. Now, as the focus shifts to major public infrastructure projects, Canadians deserve to see their tax money's worth. We stand ready to bolster climate resilience, emissions reduction, economic greening, and the creation of quality middle-class employment opportunities.”
