Why the Regional Construction Group?

The Regional Construction Group (RCG) program is delivered by the Hamilton-Halton Construction Association for the primary benefit of our members and those of our partners, the Toronto Construction Association, the West End Home Builders Association and the Residential Construction Council of Ontario. We are a former Safety Group sponsor and have successfully supported construction and related employers with their health and safety for more than 20 years. Our supportive, personal approach has helped our program members improve their health and safety performance while earning rebates to help pay for them.


The fee to participate in the Regional Construction Group (RCG) is $1050 + HST per 12-month period (starting upon receipt of application). This fee applies to HHCA/TCA/WE HBA/RESCON members only.
