Helping build the next generation of construction leaders.


The BCA is dedicated to helping the Simcoe County construction sector grow and succeed, and the next generation of construction leaders are essential to this growth.

That’s where the BCA’s Young Leaders group steps in to help! The group is all about engaging, connecting and building leaders for their future in the industrial, commercial and institutional construction industry.  This group stemmed from the vision to maintain a strong personal bond among companies, ensuring seamless growth and development within the construction industry as the previous generation transitions and retires. The goal is to empower the next generation of industry professionals with the same valuable connections for a thriving future
