Message from NRCA CEO, Nicole Bryant

I want to take a moment and thank the membership for a warm welcome into the role of chief executive officer at NRCA. As many of you are already aware, I was appointed this role by the board of directors effective June 1, 2022. There was a successful tran sition to new leadership in the asso ciation with the outgoing CEO, Scott Bone, providing direction and support during the month of June. I have start ed to settle into my role, and the staff has been very welcoming and support ive during the change. We have started to set some goals and are working on developing how we can enhance the member experience, as well as look ing at ways to engage members to hear what is important to them.

In this new role, I bring with me a diverse background of experience to the Northern Regional Construction Association. Throughout my career, I have developed a comprehensive understanding of the construction in dustry from business development and sales to project management and coor dination. I am excited to be continuing

the legacy that Scott has created with NRCA over his tenure here and I am looking forward to working with the board of directors and team here at NRCA to bring the association into the next chapter. I know that there are ex citing times that lie ahead as I become more familiar with our membership and the needs that they have.

With COVID-19 restrictions easing and in-person events now able to take place, we have seen more in-person meetings along with opportunity to travel and plan events. The pandemic is not yet in our rearview mirror, but we are feeling some sense of return to normal over the first half of the year. The economic effects, however, still present challenges within many indus tries, and construction is not immune. Supply chain and labour issues weigh heavily on projects both proposed and in progress. NRCA maintains an ac tive voice in the conversations at all levels to help address these concerns. Pandemic issues aside, the industry continues to face issues around fair and open bidding practices as well as

prompt payment legislation. The as sociation remains vocal in support of their members so that these issues do not fall by the wayside.

Construction stays strong within the B.C. economy, with a 9.3 per cent contribution to the overall provincial GDP. There is currently $134 billion in projects within B.C. and $226 bil lion proposed. Given a five-year trend, there will be over 27,000 job openings within the construction sector in the province, and over 5,000 will remain unfilled. Now is an important time to be promoting careers within the in dustry, and NRCA will set their sights on programs that will help bring more workers in all areas on construction including skilled trades. We work to strengthen partnerships with pro grams offered through BCCA as well as training programs through our local and regional higher education institu tions.

2023 looks to be an exciting year for NRCA and we look forward to serv ing our members and community. We would like to thank all our mem bers for their continued support of the association as we look forward to tackling the challenges of the last few years. We would also like to extend our sincerest thanks to Scott Bone, former CEO, as his time at the association set the foundation for success going for ward. We are grateful for his time at NRCA and will continue the excellent work he began.

Continue to stay safe and healthy! l

Message from the NRCA Chair, Lee Bedell

As we start to ease out of our pandemic reality, Northern Regional Construc tion Association maintains their efforts in the support and advocacy of the con struction industry. As the world begins to open up, we see new opportunities for collaboration and networking; however, there are still challenges within industry that the NRCA continues to advocate for. Now is more important than ever to be a part of the association and join as a unified voice for transformation and advancement.

NRCA underwent a big change in 2022 with the retirement of our CEO, Scott Bone, and the appointment of Ni cole Bryant as his successor. Scott as sumed the role of CEO in 2015 and since

that time, he has played a critical role in the restructuring of the organization to ensure its ability to serve the diverse needs of its membership in an evolving construction environment. His steward ship of the organization over the past seven years has done so much to ad vance our mission to promote and serve the construction industry. He left the or ganization with the human and financial resources necessary to further advance our services and initiatives. We cannot thank Scott enough for the dedication, enthusiasm, and passion he has brought to NRCA. He will be greatly missed by the board, members, staff, and partners. We wish him well in his retirement and know that he shares our confidence in

Nicole’s ability to work in partnership with the board to continue to build the capacity, expertise, and profile of NRCA.

I am very pleased to have served the board as chair as I finish off my last year in this position; I wish all the best to the incoming chair in March. I have enjoyed my time with the association and will continue to serve the members as I move into the past chair position. On behalf of the board of directors, we would like to thank Scott, Nicole, and the staff at NRCA for overseeing the operations of an association that provides much need ed support the businesses and partners within the industry. l

Established by the Vancouver Island Construction Association (VICA), the Tailgate Toolkit Project aims to bring awareness and resources to the growing opioid crisis in the construction indus try.

“Men in construction continue to be disproportionately represented in drug poisoning deaths. This is unacceptable, and we’re looking to make a change,” VICA CEO Rory Kulmala says.

In 2018, the coroner’s report identi fied that a disproportional number of drug poisoning deaths were coming from men in the construction, trades, and transport industry. The Tailgate Toolkit Project came to fruition to ad dress the opioid and toxic drug deaths

happening in the community. Initially, Kulmala, through a personal connec tion at the Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA), put together a work shop that occurred once a month to of fer naloxone training and opioid aware ness training. It was an informal work shop that took place over two years at VICA’s Victoria and Nanaimo locations. In 2020, VIHA approached Kulmala to explore if VICA could expand the train ing and further develop the Tailgate Toolkit to provide direct outreach to

2022, the program was adopted by the Ministry of Mental Health and Addic tion, which provided additional fund ing to expand the Tailgate Toolkit pro vincially.

“We took the first six months to talk to user groups and stakeholder groups, so we could understand what was impor tant for them,” Kulmala recalls. “On the user side, we drafted a comprehensive report that highlighted the relationship our workforce has with substance use, where it stems from, and what possible

with employers to develop resources to assist them with managing employees who may be struggling with addiction or substance use.”

However, Kulmala says the program wasn’t created to ask ‘why’ or cast judg ment on anyone. “We just want to get the information, direct people to the resources available, and get the gov ernment to try to address the issues of toxic drug and opioid use,” he explains.

After a year of stakeholder engage ment and development, the Tailgate Toolkit Project launched in Septem

ber 2021. A multifaceted intiative, the project consists of four pillars: on-site Toolbox Talks, supervisory training, region-specific resource guides, and an industry support group.

“A typical Toolbox Talk starts with one of our regional co-ordinators giv ing a 30-minute talk about opioids, toxic drugs, mental health, and pain management,” Kulmala says. This sort of informal meetup gives people the chance to pursue more information as they choose. In the past when they held scheduled events, people didn’t want to attend because they didn’t want to reveal or out themselves. This way, the harm co-ordinators are going to them, casually sharing information without directing the discussion to any one in dividual. To date, the Tailgate team has delivered talks to over 2,150 industry members.

“The Toolbox Talk is a great way we can present in front of an open audi ence, but everyone has to be there,” Kulmala adds.

The second pillar is supervisor train ing. Together with their regional part ners, the Tailgate team offers a compre hensive Gold Seal and CPD accredited, multi-day course that teaches company leaders how to manage and help their employees who may be struggling with substance use.

The third pillar of the project in cludes a comprehensive suite of print and digital resources. The project has taken a regional approach so that all materials are relatable and accurate to each community in B.C. For example, the resources in Prince George might not be right for the community in Fort St. John, and vice versa.

“We make sure the program is not general or one-size-fits-all,” Kulmala says. “We try to give information that is relevant to the community.”

The final pillar of the project includes

a support group that meets online once a week on Thursdays from 7 to 8 p.m., which is facilitated by The Umbrella Society. The facilitator is someone who has had experiences working in the construction industry and substance use.

“When we did our stakeholder en gagement meeting, one of the things they wanted was a place where people can go and talk,” Kulmala says. “That’s

what is unique about our program; it’s not a 12-step program and it’s not faithbased. The audience is comprised of people who are in our sector, and they understand the pressures of the con struction industry.”

Some people flush their careers down the toilet, but Cristina Bond has turned toilets into a career.

However, Bond didn’t always know she would own the golden throne game. She was previously an early child edu cator until she had children of her own. She took on a new job afterwards as a service advisor at an automotive shop, which was completely different than what she had done in the past. But that was where her life changed.

“From there, I was headhunted to run a business. The previous owner had brought all their vehicles into the shop where I worked to have them repaired,” Bond says. The owner of that business approached Bond to offer her an op

erations manager position with them. Bond accepted, and the rest is history.

After a great first year, the owner then asked Bond if she was ready to purchase the business. Bond said, “Yes.” Another year later, Bond was of ficially the owner of Prince George Por table Toilet Services Ltd. She recently celebrated the second-year anniversary of her ownership on July 1, 2022.

“We were so busy, we blew right through it,” she recalls. “I can’t be lieve we bought this business right in the height of COVID. That was pretty amazing.”

Prince George Portable Toilet Ser vices Ltd. delivers and picks up porta ble toilets all around Northern British

16 Northern Regional Construction Association

Columbia. These toilets can be found at weddings, fairs, and especially on con struction sites for contractors to com fortably use when they’re working long hours on a project. The company boasts almost 700 toilets and seven employees with Bond at the helm.

Due to the pandemic, Bond didn’t have a typical business journey. Be cause of lockdowns and cancellations, she didn’t get to bring her toilets to any events, which she remembered as stressful. Luckily, construction proj ects boomed during the early stages of COVID-19.

“Construction kept us busy through out the pandemic,” Bond says. “We found we did a lot of increased services, so we’d have clients wanting us to come daily to sanitize these toilets.”

The fact that these toilets were porta ble is why the business was so success ful during the pandemic, Bond says. People were already cautious about letting people inside their homes and places of business. Bond’s toilets stayed outdoors, so there was minimal to no contact involved.

On top of owning a business during a pandemic, Bond also had to endure the regular pressures of being a woman in an otherwise male-dominated industry. Bond says men would rush to her res cue when she arrived to a job site, ask ing to unload the toilets for her when she was fully capable and willing to do it herself.

“I drove the truck here. I can do it!” she says.

However, she hasn’t and won’t let the subtle sexism get her down. She is making a name for herself in the porta ble toilet industry, and her clients now know she is the boss in charge.

“It also helps when I get in the truck and go to the sites, setting up the toilets and talking to the employees,” Bond says. “They can put a face to the name

of the person they talk to on the phone. I can be in the office and go out to do the job myself.”

Although Bond is fairly new to the business, she already has big dreams for herself and the company.

“When people think of portable toi lets, I want them to think of my face,” she says.

Instead of fame and fortune, Bond wants to be there for her community.

Owning a business during the COV ID-19 pandemic has solidified that vi sion for her.

“I want to be the one that people will call to help when they have their celebrations. We’re there, but we’re in the background. It’s not the most pretty business, but we want to be there on the most important day of your life.”

Across every region of B.C., contractors continue to operate in a challenging, high-risk market.

Not long ago, Regional Construction Association (RCA) members could say confidently that B.C.’s construction in dustry was “booming” and filled with opportunity. Despite a shortage of skilled workers, things were good and getting bet ter.

We can’t say that now.

In the midst of a volatile economy, B.C.’s industrial, com mercial, and institutional builders are straining to meet the record-setting demand for construction services. As the risk factors continue to rise, many contractors are nearing a break ing point.

BCCA’s submission to the Select Standing Committee on Finance for the 2023 Provincial Budget focused on the need for prompt payment legislation. The legislation would unlock cash flow and offer some counterbalance to the increasing fis cal pressure on contractors.

Let’s look at just a few of the challenges industry operators are dealing with right now:

• Material cost escalations

• Supply chain disruptions

• Inflation and rising interest rates

• Contract terms and risk transfers so “creative” that all too

often it’s a sickening risk to sign

• High cost of staffing and the retirement of experienced workers

• Late payments – often well beyond 120 days – and get ting later (late payments beyond 30 days can be disas trous. Only in construction do we consider longer terms “acceptable”.)

• Surprise labour legislation, such as B.C.’s new five-day mandatory sick leave and Bill 10, which brings card checks and annual union raids back during the height of the summer building season.

More than ever before, the market conditions are too unknowable, demands are too high, and the outcomes too unpredictable. The fact that there is so much work doesn’t diminish the risks or mitigate their impact to existing con tracts. And in the northern regions of B.C., the effects of ex treme weather all too often add yet another layer of disrup tion and risk.

Rather than layering on challenge after challenge and change after change, and playing to ideology rather than necessity, BCCA believes that the provincial government needs to get back to basics to support B.C.’s 25,000 contrac tors and the 240,000 people who work for them.

With “unprecedented levels of investment” in public in frastructure comes a responsibility to strengthen the indus try that’s needed to build that infrastructure.

Here are five actions to head off the failures that are looming on the near horizon:

Prioritize prompt payment legislation for fall 2022.

Implement targeted price escalation clauses that allow reasonable flexibility in existing and new fixed-price con tracts.

Require public owners to limit bid/price acceptance to a maximum of 30 days (as even 30 days is not always pos sible).

Create a “fast track” for skilled tradespeople coming to

B.C., like the fast track already created to bring in labour for the tech industry through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP).

5. Forgive all post-secondary student loans for young people who get jobs in B.C.’s construction industry and register as apprentices, allowing them to earn out their loan with each year of completed apprenticeship training.

B.C.’s construction industry was designated essential as it worked throughout pandemic and kept the economy going in communities across the province. Now, as B.C. strives to recover from the economic effects of COVID-19, the construc tion industry’s role and survival is more important than ever. Yes, there is opportunity. But if that opportunity is going to cost you your business, your health, your peace of mind. We’ve all learned a lot about life balance in the last two years. When risks are so high that long-time, successful contractors are openly questioning their future in the industry, we need to listen. Let’s not take anything – or anyone – for granted.

Over the past 12 weeks, a group of In digenous students have rolled up their sleeves exploring the trades. Enrolled in the School of Trades and Technol ogy’s Trades Sampler Program at Thompson Rivers University’s (TRU) Williams Lake campus, the students are getting practical trades experience while revitalizing the historic Soda Creek Emporium near Xatśūll Heri tage Village north of Williams Lake.

Designed for students without trades experience, the three-month sampler program provides skills training in three construction-related trade: car pentry, plumbing and electrical.

“Students are also part of the Resi dential Building Maintenance Worker program, supported by the Industry Training Authority, which leads and manages B.C.’s trades training and apprenticeship system,” says Heather

Hamilton, associate director of Com munity Education and Workforce Training at the School of Trades and Technology. “So, they’re being intro duced to drywall, trim, siding and roofing while renovating houses in the area.”

The School of Trades has run more than 30 sampler programs in Indig enous communities over the years. “Typically, we run eight to 10 pro

grams every year, each of which devel ops much-needed hands-on skills and provides employment opportunities for Indigenous students,” she adds.

Future in trades

In Williams ies Community Co-ordinator Alison Sutherland-Mann talked with four stu dents – Basil Plant, Justin Hutchin son, Tye Jeff, and Denny Sill – as they near completion of the program.

“They said the experience has been very positive, and they’ve learned many things,” says Sutherland-Mann.

“They’ve been undertaking renova tions, so taking everything apart and putting it all back together, only better, plus doing siding and roofing. They all agree that this is a good fit for them. They enjoy the work and say they will continue to work in the trades.”

Sutherland-Mann says the students will likely be hired by contractors from Xatśūll.

The multi-million-dollar Xatśūll First Nation project, which began on May 2, includes the rejuvenation of the emporium’s once-thriving restau rant and the development of a gas sta tion, convenience store, museum and electric vehicle charging stations at the site. It is expected to take a year to complete.

Integris Credit Union is more than another financial institution; it is the leading financial co-operative in North-Central B.C. enriching the lives of all they serve through responsive fi nancial expertise, innovative membersolutions and targeted community in vestment.

According to Daniel Wingham, man ager of partnerships, “Integris Credit Union’s roots are founded in the coop

erative principles/movement. In the 1940s, locals throughout the region did not have access to many financial services – primarily lending. Locals realized the need to band together to overcome the ‘access’ issue and credit unions (CU) in Prince George, Vander hoof, and Quesnel were created.”

Since those modest beginnings and through amalgamation in 2004/2005, PG Savings CU, Nechako Valley

CU, and Quesnel & District CU cre ated Integris, which has grown into a $1.8-billion co-operative enterprise. Integris provides banking, borrow ing, insurance (including the ICBC Autoplan), financial planning, wealth management and group benefits to more than 27,000 member-owners in Northern B.C. With their slogan, Life Out Here™, Integris conveys a deep connection with the people, projects

and priorities that make Northern BC such a fantastic place to live and do business.

Commercial Services

Sandra Rose is the senior man ager of the commercial services department, which includes a knowledgeable team with tenured experience and interest in looking at a variety of industries, including construction.

“We’re open to looking at provid ing operating financing, typically through a line of credit, as well as term loans and builder’s mortgag es,” Rose says. “Integris is aware of the economic drivers, industry constraints, and growth opportuni ties available in the communities we support and we work to provide flexible financing for our clients.”

Integris assists with the con struction of commercial and indus trial buildings, multi-family units, development projects and equip ment financing.

Integris is relationship-driven and works to understand the needs of a business as a whole rather than simply focusing on the transaction al aspect.

For any commercial loan inqui ries, you may contact Sandra Rose at

Insurance Services

Integris’ insurance services in clude a full range of options for both personal and business insur ance needs. Our commercial insur ance division can source coverage for commercial general liability, business assets both on and off-site, course of construction, bonding, plus much more.

Alexis Jefferies, commercial in surance broker, explains, “Com

For the physical assets of a busi ness, coverage can be provided for a wide range of assets, small and large. Commercial vehicles, office buildings, contents, mobile construction equip ment, materials, and supplies located at job sites and tools can all be covered. Jefferies says they can also provide construction-specific coverages such as Course of Construction or Builders Risk. These are designed to protect property owners, project owners, de velopers, and contractors while major

renovation or construction work is underway. In addition, having project specific wrap-up liability can stream line administration and simplify the settlement of claims arising from inci dents on a construction site.

“We also provide other coverage that almost any business can benefit from, such as protection from cyber in cidents or losses arising from crime.”

Jefferies also says the credit union’s Affinity Program with the Northern Regional Construction Association provides the latter’s members incen tive as well as a free comprehensive risk review of their insurance portfolio in which they make suggestions/rec ommendations and provide quotes on insurance.

Financial Planning Services

Integris’ financial planning services is a full-service investment firm offer ing retirement accounts, brokerage accounts, stocks, fixed income invest ments, mutual funds, exchange traded funds, life insurance, living benefits insurance, group benefits plans, and group retirement plans.

“Our business is people and their financial well-being, from creating personalized savings strategies for all your short and long-term goals, to selecting the right investment prod ucts for you, working through estate considerations, and setting up insur ance protection for you and your loved ones,” Sukhi Klair, senior manager of wealth management, says.

In a tough market for talent, offer

ing employees benefits and a pension plan is a great way to remain com petitive. Integris can help employers understand what is important when it comes to managing your employee group benefits plan which can help attract, retain, and maintain quality employees. Integris can offer full, indepth and strategic advice for setting up group RSPs and or pension plans.

All About the Community

In addition to the financial services that Integris provides, it also has a mission to give back to the communi ties it serves.

“There is no one like us,” Wingham says. “In contrast to our competitors, we exist to serve Integris members and communities through responsive solu tions and by retaining profits here (the fuel of local economic and commu nity development). Integris members contribute to shared success (profits) which we then distribute back to them through annual dividends; all the while making targeted investments in communities throughout the region.

“Our community enrichment actions are unmatched by any other financial services provider in our region. Our deep connections with local/regional partners enable their respective mis sions leading to stronger, more resil ient communities enriching lives as a result. Over the past decade, Integris community investments have led to national awards for our partners – of ten in the innovation category. Just as locals came together to innovate local credit unions in the ‘40s, we carry on that tradition in the present. We are from here. All in. For you. Committed to making Life Out Here™ the best it can be for everyone who calls NorthCentral B.C. home,” says Wingham. l

Finding the right projects isn’t just an operational necessity, it’s also a busi ness strategy. How are you identifying new markets, products, and services? How are you cultivating new partner ships and subs, pursuing strategic op portunities for growth?

It all comes down to the power of your network, and BidCentral is here to help you build it with a powerful new directory and “invitation to bid” tools.

Managed by the non-profit BC Con struction Association, BidCentral is open to any company that serves B.C.’s construction industry and is the largest source for construction project oppor tunities in the province.

“BidCentral aggregates construction projects from all around the province in one place, so all companies can eas ily access the projects, documents and drawings and bidders’ lists,” says Adam Addlestone, director of business devel opment at BidCentral. “Get started with a free entry-level account or choose a premium subscription to get enhanced tools and more project data (NRCA members get a 60-per cent discount).”

“With a premium account, you can access all of the tender documents and get notified about updates and changes as soon as they happen,” Addlestone

says. “You can also access the bidders’ list to see who’s bidding on the project and which general contractor, trade contractors, manufacturers, and sup pliers are involved.”

Regular, free webinars – about once every three weeks – show new users how to get the most out of the platform.

BidCentral also provides valuable pre-bid content, which describes proj ects that are coming down the pipeline but aren’t open for tendering just yet. “It’s a great way to find the new projects coming in your area, so you can follow them and get ready to bid,” Addlestone notes.

BidCentral is free to project owners, general contractors, architects, and consultants, which ensures a steady stream of new projects are being post ed.

“One of BidCentral’s most notable features is the new invitation to bid,” advises Addlestone. “This is a really im portant network builder. A GC can use the BidCentral Directory to find sub trades, and then invite them to bid on projects. For example, if I’m in Prince George but I see a project in Williams Lake and don’t have the resources in Williams Lake, I can find an electrician in Williams Lake to bid on the project

with me as a subcontractor.”

The BidCentral contractor direc tory Addlestone mentions above allows companies to create a business profile, enabling others to invite them to bid on projects or to request a quote from them. Addlestone works closely with the Northern Regional Construction Association (NRCA) on the service.

“We value the partnership we have with NRCA. They do a great job of ad vocating for the construction industry in the North and making sure relevant projects are on BidCentral. Members of NRCA get a 60-per cent discount on their BidCentral subscription,” he says.

One of the many valuable features of BidCentral is “opportunity match ing”, which matches subscribers with relevant projects based on keywords that they wish to be notified about – for example, electrical or mechanical or a product name or brand such as Moen. This feature provides significant value to subscribers, who are informed every time their product or service is speci fied.

The magnitude of impact the COV ID-19 pandemic has had on economic activity, employment, and our way of working have been extensive.

By comparison, in 2009, following the global economic downturn, the construction industry in B.C. would follow the economic recovery, which it had lagged about six to eight months behind. This meant that when the economy started to regress, the con struction sector in B.C. would con tinue as it had been, remaining quite vibrant as the prior half-dozen years or so; only to join the economic distressripple six months after.

The pandemic, and what appears to be the precipice of a recovery, forced us to think about whether our organi

zation would face similar challenges as what the downturn in 2008 had presented. Perhaps, but for certain, the current challenges have greater complexity, as unlike the downturn where the economy took the brunt of the blow and people were the collateral damage; with this pandemic it became quite evident that people or the human resource is what is taking the greatest impact especially when you consider the health, wellness, and financial as pects. In fact, in construction, the in dustry remains strong and essential.

The reality is our work life has and will change as we surface from the pan demic. Both employers and employees will have their resilience tested in the workplace, mentally and physically.

Unlike many sectors such as the whitecollar sector, the construction industry did not have the option to work from home; their jobs required these work ers to be on-site, on the job and taking on the health risk exposure. The con struction sector had continued to have challenges recruiting people and it would continue to be challenged even when the pandemic should have freed up a whole cohort of available people to be introduced into the construction industry.

Our member-clients were not im mune to these challenges, and they had to re-evaluate the value proposition they presented to their current and prospective workforce. As part of the evaluative process, construction sec (250)•614•3369

tor employers would now need to de termine several components of their value proposition. This included tangible factors, such as compensa tion, retirement wealth plans, health & wellness benefits as well as the in tangibles, such as work-life balance, an inclusive and progressive culture, career path opportunities and con tinued learning and development.

According to a recent employee health benefits survey (Benefits Canada, 2022), the top three factors driving employee retention are:

1. Employee Benefits (34 per cent)

2. Strong Culture (31 per cent)

3. Belief in the Leadership Team (29 per cent)

Quite evident that this is well be yond just pay.

This sheds light into recruiting and in many ways more importantly, retention. Replacing an employee below a senior level, can cost an or ganization half that annual salary. Replacing a senior level employee can be more the 400 per cent of the salary of that position. This can be significantly greater in the construc tion sector, where specialization

adds to that cost along with availability or supply.

For our part, the Trust will continue to strongly support the NRCA and its members through thoughtful consul tation focusing squarely on address ing their human capital needs, provide services and resources focused on pos itive long term health outcomes and support industry initiatives. Working collaboratively, the Trust has support ed many initiatives of B.C.’s regional construction associations and through our work, have aligned these programs with what we feel are anticipated needs and challenges the industry and those who participate on our plan are facing. We remain proud and committed to such important initiatives:

Lesa Lacey has always been a bridge builder and a champion of inclusion. Since day one as the first female chair of the B.C. Construction Safety Alliance (BCCSA), she’s been leveraging those strengths to ensure that every sector of the province’s construction industry is heard at the Alliance table.

Lacey and her husband Erik are coowners of Lacey Construction Ltd., a full-service contractor founded in 1999 focused primarily on custom residen tial projects in the Fraser Valley. She’s been active in attending industry events and volunteering for positions that in clude BCCSA board member represent ing the Canadian Home Builders’ Asso ciation of BC (CHBA BC).

“I’m passionate about connect ing people and also connecting them to resources such as the high-calibre material and support provided by the BCCSA,” she says. “That’s why I’m so excited to take on this position. I’m a from a small town where everybody knows everybody else, and I want to bring that same level of connectedness to the member organizations repre sented on the board of the BCCSA, so that we know what their concerns are and that they know what we can offer.”

CHBA BC president Neil Moody first appointed Lacey to the BCCSA board in

2018. She has served the organization as president of the Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA), Fraser Valley. She also sat on the CHBA BC education committee, the CHBA BC Renovator’s Council and on CHBA na tional committees.

“In nominating her to the BCCSA board we were looking for someone we could rely on to demonstrate commit ment to residential construction, to the industry and to safety,” Moody says. “In everything she does, Lesa is in quisitive, detailed and meticulous. We understand that she’s the first female chair of the BCCSA, but we also know that she was confirmed in that position because she was the best person to take on that role.”

BCCSA executive director Mike McKenna says he was confident that Lacey would be a good candidate for chair from the moment she was nomi nated for the position.

“Past chair Kevin Mierau also ex pressed confidence in the abilities she had already demonstrated through her work on behalf of the board,” he says. “For the Alliance, Lesa’s connec tion with our homebuilder employer members and her ability to thread the needle with all the other associations we represent are considerable assets to

our organization.”

Tammy Oliver, senior director of the BCCSA, is the Alliance’s top-ranking female executive and has worked with Lacey for the past four years.

“Lesa has shown nothing but com mitment and dedication in her involve ment with the BCCSA,” she says. “She’s not only talented, she’s fun to work with. I’m grateful not only that she stepped up to take on the role of our first female chair, but for the wealth of construction experience — homebuild ing in particular — that she brings with her.”

She notes that Lacey is well known for her commitment to employment inclusion and her advocacy for the participation of women in the indus try. She’s been a volunteer at Skills BC events supporting women in trades and worked with the Industry Training Authority to develop a best practices guide designed to help employers hire and retain female workers.

Lacey notes that she’s proud to be the Alliance’s first female chair.

“But I never felt I was singled out in that way,” she says. “I’ve always felt that I’m here first as someone who is committed to construction safety.”

As a famous TV show once said, “Winter is coming.” It’s never too early to start thinking about parkas, shovels, and even ve hicles.

A campaign that annually goes into effect on October 1, Shift into Winter is entering its 14th year of helping drivers in B.C. safely maneuver the roads during the winter months. The public campaign runs from the beginning of October to the end of February, but the program works with employers even earlier than that, according to Trace Acres program director for Road Safety at Work.

In B.C., statistics show that driving during the winter

months is the most hazardous in terms of crashes. Shift Into Winter’s overall goal is to bring the number of driving-related deaths or injuries during winter to zero.

“A lot of these accidents are preventable, and that is one of the key messages,” Acres says. “With good preparation and precautions, everyone who drives for work should be able to get home safely after their shift.”

Shift into Winter aims to spread its messaging to people who drive for work , such as contractors and other folks in the construction industry, and to the general public. “The mes sage is to prepare your vehicle and your drivers for winter. It

30 Northern Regional Construction Association

is never too soon to start to not just winterize your vehicle and get the right tires, but also to assess your driving skills for the season,” Acres says.

Road Safety at Work provides a variety of tools and resourc es at for anyone to use, including online courses that individual drivers and employers can take. They also offer a webinar in December that is focused on winter driving safety. All tools and resources are flexible and can be accessed at each driver’s own pace and schedule.

Acres encourages winter drivers to “know before you go”, which means checking the weather forecast before heading out, or visiting Mobile DriveBC for information on road con ditions in the province.

“If the conditions look really bad, is there an alternative way for you to get there? Do you have to make that trip?” Acres asks. “In the case of NRCA members who have to do their jobs, if they need to make that trip, how can they get there as safely as possible?

“Incidents do inevitably happen in winter, but if you take

the necessary precautions and drive safely, you’re going to sig nificantly lower the risks of being involved in a crash,” Acres says. “With the right kind of vehicle maintenance, prepara tion, training, and education, we can really reduce crash and injury statistics.”
