Our History

The Western Canada Roadbuilders & Heavy Construction Association (WCR&HCA) originally known as the Prairie Roadbuilders Association had its origins in 1943. Its founding members were the roadbuilder associations from the provinces of Manitoba and Saskatchewan. At that time they were the nucleus of the Prairie Roadbuilders Section of the Canadian Construction Association (CCA).

In 1956 the Alberta Roadbuilders Association joined, followed by the British Columbia Roadbuilders Association in 1973, and at that time our name changed to the Western Canada Roadbuilders Association. In 1996 our name was expanded to better reflect the full spectrum of industries represented, and we became the Western Canada Roadbuilders & Heavy Construction Association (WCR&HCA).
