CRCA is an association driven by its members. Your CRCA membership provides you with an incomparable menu of products, services and benefits including:
CRCA advocates by representing and defending the interests of its members on national and international issues. The CRCA Board of Directors has two standing committees that advocate for members: the National Technical Committee and the Associate Members Committee. Our members provide us direction and guidance and give us the mandate to speak out on the issues and concerns affecting them, through their participation on our committees and through their representation on our board. CRCA established key alliances to heighten its advocacy work. These alliances are with the Canadian Construction Association (CCA), the National Trade Contractors Coalition of Canada (NTCCC) and the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA).
CRCA makes many valuable publications available to members on issues that are important to the industry. Our current library includes CRCA's Preventative Maintenance Manual, Roofing Specifications Manual, Canadian Roofing Reference Manual, the Technical and Advisory Bulletins and the Roofing Canada magazine.
