The community benefits concept has gained increased attention as all levels of government across Canada have ear-marked significant funding over the next decade to repair and expand public infrastructure. Community benefits agreements and/or frameworks create an opportunity to enhance this investment to achieve additional social and economic benefits.
Understanding the scope and context of community benefits will help stakeholders in the unionized construction industry assess what role they can play in the community benefit arena. This report is a first step in starting a dialogue about community benefits with our labour and management stakeholders and to demystify this relatively new concept for achieving a broader public good through the construction of public and private sector projects.
