National Roofing Week

The Canadian Roofing Contractors Association (CRCA) is excited to announce that Canada’s first annual National Roofing Week celebration will take place nationwide from August 24 to 28, 2020. We look forward to your participation and to encourage you – we will be sending each CRCA member a Roofing Week kit with complete details, suggestions and instructions on how to join our celebration. But you don’t have to be a member to celebrate Roofing Week; we encourage everyone involved in the roofing industry to join the celebration.

Inspired by National Roofing Week in the United States, this initiative of the CRCA, and our provincial affiliates from coast to coast, aims to raise awareness of the importance of “having a roof over your head”, bring awareness to the roofing industry and the important work that CRCA members perform year-round.

The three goals of Roofing Week are:

To increase awareness across Canada about the significance of roofs
to every home and business and share the good deeds of the industry.

To increase the awareness of the roofing trade across Canada. When most people think of trades, they think of plumbers and electricians – we want to change that. There are 56 Red Seal Trades in Canada and Roofer is one of them.

To promote the importance of hiring a CRCA professional roofing contractor and making informed decisions about maintaining or replacing any roof system.

Throughout this week, our roofing contractors/members will highlight through various actions and initiatives, the importance of roofers in Canadian society, whether for job creation, continuing education, or involvement in the community.

Each day Roofing Week will have a dedicated theme:

Monday, August 24: Employee appreciation – share photos of your company’s employees
Tuesday, August 25: Employee training – share photos that demonstrate how you train your workers
Wednesday, August 26: Charitable projects/events – share photos that demonstrate your company’s charitable giving or participation in charitable events
Thursday, August 27: Signature projects – share photos of your company’s signature industrial, commercial or institutional projects
Friday, August 28: Celebration Day – share how you and your team celebrated roofing week

Get involved/how to participate…Social media plays a crucial role in the success of National Roofing Week. Be sure to share your company’s photos and videos and using:  #RoofingWeekCanada  #CRCA  #NationalRoofingWeek and/or #CRCA.
