The Canadian Institute of Steel Construction (CISC) is the voice for the steel construction industry. We promote dialogue, collaboration and commerce between industry stakeholders—advancing the benefits of steel to the consulting community, builders and buyers, academia and government.
The CISC is proud to be the premier organization in creating solutions for the critical issues that challenge the steel construction industry.
Every year at Parliament Hill, alongside our Members & Associates, the CISC lobbies all level of government to acknowledge the state of Canada’s steel construction industry and to create policies that allows Canadian steel companies to remain competitive while positioning steel as the building material of choice. Together, we urge them to take action on the critical issues that impact that day-to-day lives of Canadian steel companies, communities and people.
This unique opportunity allows key stakeholders and representatives from across Canada to bring forward their experiences on the direct effects these challenges have on businesses and the middle class, while presenting the solutions that will invoke the change our industry needs to succeed.
