OTTAWA, Ontario — The Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating (CIPH) and the Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada (MCA Canada) jointly held a Parliamentary Day of Awareness in Ottawa. Represented by their executive committees, participants met with several key officials and parliamentarians to enhance the profile of the industry in government circles as well as to discuss two key items of mutual concern, specifically, prompt payment provisions in federal contracts, and bi-national regulatory cooperation and streamlined standards.
A day prior, CIPH representatives met with senior staff at the embassy of the United States to ask for Canadian exemptions to the Buy American Act.
