MCA Canada Looking
For Contractor Input

MCA Canada is part of a National Industry Advisory Committee overseeing a pilot project which includes a thorough review of the Red Seal Occupational Standard for the Steamfitter/Pipefitter trade. As part of the review, industry stakeholders, including MCA Canada members, are asked to participate in an online survey, the results of which will greatly assist with the final drafting of the National Occupational Standard. Some members may have already completed the survey through their provincial MCA’s but for those who have not but are interested, the link to the survey is: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/87QQZM3.
