Prompt Payment BC Meeting

Timely cash flow throughout the construction payment chain is fundamental to a healthy construction industry.

Delay in payments anywhere in the supply chain reduces profit and restricts innovation and investment in plant, machinery and people. It also increases the cost to finance company operations and drives up the cost of construction overall.

The impact of payment delay on small- and medium-sized enterprises can be disproportionately severe, and even a minor delay in payment of one or two invoices can put smaller businesses under severe financial stress.

VRCA and COCTA therefore invite you to a meeting about Moving Forward with Strategies for Prompt Payment in BC.

Date: Tuesday, March 6, 3 to 6 p.m.* Full!

Second session added:
Wednesday, March 7, 3 to 5 p.m.

Time: 3 – 5 p.m.
Location: Training Room
Vancouver Regional Construction Association
3636 East 4th Avenue, Vancouver

*Note: The March 6 meeting was extended to 3 to 6 p.m. to accommodate federal prompt payment representatives who want to address the audience on the national initiative. The March 7 meeting retains the original schedule of 3 to 5 p.m.

RSVP for March 7 Session!

Government met with pessimism in construction industry The BC media and sponsored fact-givers have been especially busy lately as our new provincial government slips into the offices of authority and begin to do its job. MLAs would have been there sooner had the slow-to-depart Liberals moved faster from denial to acceptance of the election results. […]

MCABC is your Advocate

The best associations offer three pillars of benefits to their members: Education, Information and Advocacy.  MCABC has, since its inception, been a leader in all three areas.
