CRCA Announces first-ever National Roofing Week in Canada

June 4, 2020 – Ottawa, Ontario

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.

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.

The three goals of Roofing Week are:

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

Secondly, 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.

Thirdly, Roofing Week will promote the importance of hiring a CRCA professional roofing contractor and making informed decisions about maintaining or replacing any roof system.

Each day Roofing Week will have a dedicated theme:

  • Monday, August 24 is Employee Appreciation
  • Tuesday, August 25 is Employee Training
  • Wednesday, August 26 is Charitable Projects
  • Thursday, August 27 is Signature Projects
  • Friday, August 28 is Celebration Day – share how you and your team celebrated Roofing Week

We will be encouraging you to post your photos and videos on social media using the hashtags: #RoofingWeekCanada  #CRCA  #NationalRoofingWeek and  #RoofingCanada

CRCA recently launched our social media networks and we encourage you to follow our Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn pages to advance the success of the roofing industry. We’ll be posting the most up-to-date information on events, member services, insider tips and revealing more about our annual conference on our social channels, so be sure to stay tuned!

By joining the NRCA, we are creating North America’s first ever National Roofing Week!

Please join our celebration and make our first annual Roofing Week a memorable one! All of the Roofing Week information will be available on CRCA’s website.
