The last federal election brought many new voices to Parliament Hill and created a new dynamic with a minority government. Working with Members of Parliament from every party is critical now more than ever in this political environment. Local issues are more influential in the day-to-day workings of Ottawa as the COVID-19 crisis have forced many Parliamentarians to place a higher priority on the concerns of businesses in their communities. Now more than even, it is critical to ensure infrastructure projects are a major component of Canada’s economic recovery.
That why we need you to take part in the Parliamentary Partners program!
The Parliamentary Partners program supports ACEC members at a grassroots level to work and communicate with the MP in their riding. Developing a relationship is key!
We will help you succeed in leveraging video conference meetings, or a face-to-face meeting or project tour when it is again safe to do so.
To join the program, simply fill out the volunteer information form. A member of our public affairs team will be assigned to you to prepare you to meet with your local MP and build a relationship that will support consulting engineering priorities today and for years to come.
ACEC firmly believes that the contacts and relationships developed through the Parliamentary Partners program support the association’s legislative activities and contribute to successful advocacy outcomes for the sector. By agreeing to serve as a Parliamentary Partner, you will make a substantial contribution to strengthening the consulting engineering industry.
