VIDEO: Michael Atkinson, President of the Canadian Construction Association
Michael Atkinson, the president of the Canadian Construction Association, took time out from the 94th annual CCA conference in Savannah, Georgia to speak with the Journal of Commerce.
Atkinson covered initiatives the CCA has undertaken in the past year to tackle issues such as the labour shortage, the importance of tackling Canada’s infrastructure in a post-stimulus world and the rise of Canada as a construction market, with the industry set to become the fifth biggest in the world by 2020.
Atkinson also reflected on the importance of the annual conference as a way for members of the construction industry to get together for face to face networking, as well as take advantage of the educational opportunities afforded by the many sessions held throughout the week.
