The Manitoba government announced its 2021 construction awards at the Manitoba Heavy Construction Association’s (MHCA) virtual annual general meeting.
“Our government recognizes the importance of the construction industry in Manitoba and the impact it has on rebuilding our economy,” said Infrastructure Minister Ron Schuler. “The completion of construction projects across the province provide communities with safe and sustainable infrastructure and further develops our labor force. The annual awards celebrate and recognize the outstanding work and achievements that the construction sector has performed over the past year and their important contributions to moving our province forward.”
Each year, nominations are submitted for projects in seven different construction categories.
