Collaboration is critical for CRCA to achieve its mandate and serve its members. Our aim is to complement the efforts of provincial roofing contractor associations on a national and international level. Part of this work is creating alliances within the North American roofing industry.
CRCA Provincial Roofing Alliances include:
Provincial Affiliated Roofing Contractor Associations
When we first opened our doors back in 1958 our purpose was simple; we wanted to bring together professional roofing contractors, manufacturers and suppliers who are dedicated to the promotion and protection of the public interest in everything that relates to roofing. Our mission is to give our members the training, technical support and leadership to enable them to offer their customers the highest quality roofing practices, guarantees and business ethics in the roofing and related industries in BC. RCABC established the first roofing guarantee that’s backed by both the contractor who does the work and the RCABC itself. It’s called the RoofStar Guarantee and is based on having qualified contractors, well-trained installers, accepted standards for materials, and independent inspections. That means only roofs built by RCABC members can be covered by the RoofStar Guarantee. We don’t just stop there, we also take a proactive role in advancing roofing technology and built the RCABC training centre, the first educational facility in North America designed for and dedicated to training the entire roofing industry.
ARCA was established in 1961 by a group of Calgary and Edmonton roofing contractors. The association’s primary objective, then and now, is to develop comprehensive guidelines for roofing product applications to support and advance Alberta’s roofing industry. ARCA members annually perform approximately 70% of Alberta’s Industrial/Commercial roofing applications — new and re-roof. Only ARCA members can issue the Warranty Certificate, which is a workmanship warranty backed by ARCA Warranty Ltd.
Through the SRCA and since 1963, members have access to the training, information and technological expertise they need to maintain the highest professional standards and provide customers with the highest possible quality of roofing practices and business ethics. The Association is also an active promoter of safe work practices. Since its inception, the SRCA has served as a forum for members and their customers to express, discuss and resolve problems, concerns and issues related to the commercial and industrial roofing industry. The Association encourages members to learn from the experts, from those they serve and from each other. Today, SRCA members are well equipped to help their customers deal with the challenges of a changing industry and a fast growing, fast paced Saskatchewan economy.
The Roofing Contractors Association of Manitoba (RCAM) was founded in the early 60’s to be the provincial affiliate of the Canadian Roofing Contractors’ Association (CRCA). Our membership consists of two main categories: roofing contractors, who are actively engaged in the construction of commercial, industrial and institutional “flat” roofs, and associate members, the companies engaged in manufacturing and/or supplying materials and services used in our industry.
Founded in 1964, the Ontario Industrial Roofing Contractors Association (OIRCA) is a professional group of union and non-union industrial/commercial/institutional (ICI) roofing and sheet metal contractors, product suppliers/ manufacturers and building science consultants/engineers.
Founded in 1966, the Quebec Master Roofers Association is THE reference in the roofing industry in Quebec. Its services are many, but its mission remains unique: to promote the excellence of its members in the construction industry.
The New Brunswick Roofing Contractors Association (NBRCA) is dedicated to maintaining and promoting exceptional roofing practices, the safe delivery of quality roofing systems, and the protection of the public’s interest related to low slope roofing applications. Our members are professional roofing contractors, manufacturers, suppliers, consultants, and quality assurance observers. Founded in 1969, NBRCA contractor members, supported by associate, consultant, and observer members, and by well-trained and highly skilled employees, have installed more than four out of five roofs in the commercial, industrial and institutional sectors.
Approximately fifty years ago, a small number of roofing contractors met in Halifax, Nova Scotia to discuss the possibility of forming an association to promote good quality commercial roofing workmanship. Today the main goal of RCANS is to promote professional workmanship in the commercial, industrial and institutional roofing industry in Nova Scotia.
