Conceived over 75 years ago from a desire to bridge the gap between national and regional associations, the OGCA continues to ensure that the interests of general contractors and the construction industry are not overlooked. As far back as the first meeting, the OGCA’s stated objective was the protection and advancement of the interests of the general contractors and the safety of our workers in the Province.
