CRCA Announces second annual National Roofing Week in Canada

April 13, 2021 – Ottawa, Ontario

The Canadian Roofing Contractors Association (CRCA) is excited to announce that Canada’s second annual National Roofing Week celebration will take place nationwide from June 7 to 11, 2021. 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.

This initiative of the CRCA, and our provincial affiliate roofing associations 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. CRCA and the National Roofing Contractors Association in the USA have joined their celebrations to create a true North American National Roofing Week!

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, June 7 is Signature Projects
  • Tuesday, June 8 is Charitable Projects/events
  • Wednesday, June 9 is Employee Appreciation
  • Thursday, June 10 is Employee Training
  • Friday, June 11 is Celebration Day – share how you and your team celebrated Roofing Week

We will be encouraging you to post your photos and videos on your social media platforms using the hashtags:  #RoofingWeekCanada and #RoofingCanada. CRCA members in Quebec are asked to please send your photos directly to QMRA.

CRCA invites you to visit 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!

Join our second annual celebration of National Roofing Week in Canada for a moment to remember! All information relating to this event will be available on the CRCA website at https://www.roofingcanada.com/nrw.
