Like the buildings our members construct, the Northeastern Ontario Construction Association began with a solid foundation – the skills and experience of local contractors and trades people. NOCA has grown to represent over 300 contractors, manufacturers & suppliers, service providers, consulting firms, and training and personnel providers from all over the province, supporting members at all levels. NOCA promotes member interests and provides specialized services to help member companies compete and succeed in today's ever-changing construction industry.
The Board of Directors is chosen in a way that ensures fair representation of all types of construction. The NOCA staff, along with the Board of Directors and many volunteers, serves as a collective voice to promote everything from apprenticeship education & training to suitable and desirable legislation, working conditions and wages that affect the industry in all its branches.
With the help of COCA, the Northeastern Ontario Construction Association continually improves liaisons with local, provincial and federal government which in turn help to determine comprehensible construction laws for Northern Ontario contractors. Originally called Sudbury Construction Association, the name was officially changed on September 2, 2015 to the Northeastern Ontario Construction Association to properly reflect the vast area of membership that it represents.
The building is also home to the Mechanical Contractors Association of Sudbury (Zone 3) and the Sudbury and District Joint Apprenticeship Board, the delegated authority that represents Plumbing, Steamfitting and Welding apprentices through LU 800.
