What is RCCAO?


We are a unique alliance of labour and management construction groups that advocates for investment in Ontario infrastructure. Founded in 2005, the Residential and Civil Construction Alliance of Ontario (RCCAO) has commissioned more than 59 independent research reports and 10 videos to help inform decision-makers with a vision of "Constructing Ontario's Future."

RCCAO has an excellent track record of working with governments at all levels to help develop solutions to complex issues. Using a coordinated, evidence-based approach with key stakeholders, RCCAO has had a significant impact on the infrastructure agenda and is relied upon by government decision-makers for its expertise. Our members are:

Greater Toronto Sewer and Watermain Contractors Association

Heavy Construction Association of Toronto

Joint Residential Construction Association

LiUNA, Local 183

Ontario Formwork Association

Toronto and Area Road Builders Association

International Union of Operating Engineers, Local 793

As an alliance, RCCAO advances the infrastructure debate in a non-partisan manner. While expanding opportunities for the construction sector is a core mission, many of RCCAO's objectives will ultimately serve the betterment of society. This is accomplished by:

  • Providing a forum for all member organizations, labour and management, to discuss common issues and solutions in a collaborative way.

  • Researching issues and developing reports, position papers and other publications that outline recommended courses of action.

  • Forming partnerships with other organizations to advocate on key issues such as housing, skills training and regulatory reform.

  • Communicating research findings through presentations, conferences, roundtable discussions, and outreach to government and media.
