About Us

Welcome to the Edmonton Construction Association

The Edmonton Construction Association (ECA) was incorporated in 1931 and is today the largest Non-Profit Construction Association serving the Commercial, Institutional, and Industrial Construction Industry in Western Canada.

ECA exists to advance the construction industry, through effective representation and service to our 1,100+ member firms. We are a member-driven organization – founded on the principles of integrity, leadership, quality, and value – and dedicated to excellence and innovation.

ECA members fall into four classifications: General Contractors, Trade Contractors, Manufacturers & Suppliers, and Associate Members (including Architects, Engineers and related professional services). ECA members are represented provincially by the Alberta Construction Association (ACA) and federally by the Canadian Construction Association (CCA).

At the Edmonton Construction Association we are builders. As builders of infrastructure, our members create the buildings, roads, sewers and landscapes that grow our community. We are builders of people as we provide educational and training opportunities to our membership. We are builders of relationships, between our members through social and networking events, in the community as we build, and as advocates for our industry in government and business circles. Finally, we are builders of procurement opportunity, as we provide unparalleled access to comprehensive tender information, both public and private.

Our goal at the ECA is to provide member value with a strong focus on our Four Pillars, which are: Procurement, Collaboration, Networking, and Education. ECA staff and the Board of Directors work hard to ensure that members and all stakeholders are engaged to advance our industry.
