Edmonton, AB (June 27, 2019) – PCL Construction is proud to be a founding member of the Business Council of Alberta (BCA). PCL president and CEO, Dave Filipchuk, and more than 40 top business leaders have come together to form the BCA to help drive prosperity in the province.

“I look forward to working with other industry leaders in the province to help boost our economy while creating an environment where individuals and families can thrive,” said Dave Filipchuk. “As construction industry leaders, PCL has a responsibility to the communities in which we live and work, and a huge part of that is making sure Albertans have plenty of opportunities to succeed.”

The new non-partisan, non-profit organization is set to work together to build a better Alberta—socially and economically.  Three initial themes will guide the work of the BCA:

  • ​Doing what’s right: Alberta business is focused on the right things, with a strong commitment to environment, society and good governance (ESG) innovation and leadership, as a means to achieving shared prosperity
  • A model business climate: Alberta is the place that enables opportunity and innovation, creates jobs, and attracts people and investment
  • The future, on purpose: An Alberta economy that is adaptive, resilient and thriving, enabling better lives for current and future generations

Many BCA members, including Dave Filipchuk, also work together on the Business Council of Canada. Learn more about the BCA and its vision.
