National Trade Contractors Coalition of Canada
Who is the NTCCC?
The National Trade Contractors Coalition of Canada (NTCCC) is a group of like minded national trade associations who have come together to identify issues of common interest. The members of the NTCCC are actively involved in several projects to assist not only the constituent membership of each association, but the industry as a whole.
The Coalition has identified several key projects which they will focus on, including:
- Prompt Payment both Federally and Provincially
- Supporting the use of unaltered forms of industry accepted standard forms of contracts
- Support for industry wide acceptance (e.g.: owners, designers, engineers, general and trade contractors, etc.) of a national change order standard combined with a national education/awareness program
Management education is another topic that is of paramount interest to trade contractors and an agreement to share programs among constituent member associations has been established. NTCCC is currently made up of 11 trade organizations of which CMCA is a founding member.

The NTCCC has been working with Senator Plett from Manitoba on Bill S224 – Canada Prompt Payment Act, which had its first reading on April13, 2016 and its second reading on June 7, 2016. NTCCC anticipates the bill will go to committee for consultation this fall and then move on to third reading. At that point it will get passed to the House. All bills must be considered and passed by both the Senate and the House of Commons before receiving Royal Assent from the Governor General, the final step in a bill’s passage into law.
