  • Advocacy - ICBA - Independent Contractors and Businesses Association of British Columbia
    best use of our land base to ease a tightly constrained residential land base Our BC ports have a great location and offer strong value but others are waiting to peel away our business if we don t evolve ICBA debates with CITT that BC should be exempt from rebar tariff because the local market is not adequately supplied by Canadian mills The AJAX Mines near Kamloops would produce 109 million lbs of copper and 99 000 ounces of gold per year and create 500 full time positions in various departments Polls and Studies Silent majority say yes to responsible resource development while NDP leadership remains out of touch A new study released today by ICBA reveals that overall 84 per cent of British Columbians support responsible development Of the 800 British Columbians surveyed the poll revealed that 67 per cent support the Site C Clean Energy project only 18 per cent oppose it 68 per cent support expansion of our ports and 20 per cent oppose it 62 per cent support mining and 25 per cent oppose it and 58 per cent support LNG and 28 per cent oppose it It s clear the no to everything movement in B C is not representative of citizens views on responsible resource development said Philip Hochstein president of the ICBA This poll illustrates that a strong majority of British Columbians understand that B C is a resource based economy and it creates jobs in every sector Read more Inaccurate perceptions of trade jobs study reveals A study released by the ICBA reveals that 59 per cent of young adults are unaware of how to get into the trades because of their inaccurate perceptions of construction The poll revealed that when given a list of different types of trades job opportunities with approximate wages and salaries for B C overall the 12 traditional trade jobs were ranked at the bottom of the list The greatest interest was in office opportunities such as office managers business development managers estimators and project managers Youth are interested in office jobs but do not realize that those opportunities often start with trades training ICBA president Philip Hochstein said The takeaway for me is that we need to start promoting careers in construction not a job in the trades The poll also showed that less than half of the respondents 48 per cent see a job in the trades as a long term career with opportunity for advancement because they are always in demand they can learn new skills and it pays well 52 per cent see a job in the trades as either career limiting or didn t know because it is physically demanding work there is no room for promotion and once you are in you are stuck with your trade the first things that came to mind when they heard a job in the trades were manual labour good pay training or certification required and hard work The top factors to seek a trades
