The Builders Code is an initiative of the Construction Workforce Equity Project, which is funded by the British Columbia Provincial Government’s Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training through the Canada-BC Labour Market Development Agreement (BC-LMDA) and the Sector Labour Market Partnership Program (SLMP).
The Builders code brings together an influential group of collaborating funding (BCCA, LNG Canada, ITA, BCCA EBT, WorkSafeBC, BCCSA) and non-funding (Minerva, NRCA, SICA, VRCA, VRCA) partners. It is led an administered by the BC Construction Association (BCCA)
