Each of the LCAs that comprise BestBidz are non-profit organizations that have been serving their community for decades – some as early as 1867.

These member-supported, mixed-trade organizations are committed to providing service in the areas of advocacy, relationship building, standard practices, construction documents and seals, commissioner of oaths, education, training, communications and social networking. In addition, BestBidz has also formed an unprecedented strategic alliance with Construction Market Data (CMD); Canada’s leading provider of construction project data, plans and specifications, news, analytics and forecasts. As an added benefit of this alliance, members of our association get exclusive discounts on CMD products.
