The Voice of the Construction Industry in Southwestern Alberta

LCA is your business’ voice within the Construction Industry through collective advocacy and effective representation.  An LCA Membership grants automatic membership into the Alberta Construction Association (ACA) and the Canadian Construction Association (CCA), so that our members’ views and needs are represented at all three levels of government. Our focus is to work on behalf of our membership to lead initiatives that will grow our local industry. 


COOLNet Alberta

COOLNet Alberta’s Online Plansroom provides Industry access to nearly 4,000 Alberta-wide publicly tendered construction projects annually, including pre-bid, pre-qualification notices, and bid results. LCA Members have access to password protected bidders’ lists, and electronic access to plans, specifications, and addendum.  COOLNet Alberta, the 8 Local Construction Associations, and the Alberta Construction Association are constantly working to engage and communicate with all construction stakeholders.  Through this collaborative approach we strive to open lines of communication that will contribute to a better construction industry in Alberta. 


Educational and Professional Development

Enhance skill sets and increase productivity for your business by taking advantage of the many educational seminars and workshops offered at the LCA at discounted member only rates.  In partnership with Alberta Construction Safety Association (ACSA), the LCA hosts a wide-range of safety training courses and houses an extensive safety video library, accessible to members.
