Know More About Us - ICBA Alberta


The Independent Contractors and Businesses Association (ICBA Alberta) is the voice of the open shop construction industry, and the largest construction association in the country.

ICBA Alberta represents The entrepreneurs, businesspeople, and skilled construction professionals building Alberta

Every morning in Alberta, more than 220,000 men and women get up and go to work on a construction site. They are employed by some of the best and brightest entrepreneurs in Canada; independent contractors who are taking a risk on their business, their talents, and their teams. Together, these men and women are building every part of our province – from the largest energy operations to the tallest condo buildings to the busiest hospitals to the rural farmhouse. They are building our communities, one job at a time.

We’re proud to represent these entrepreneurs, businesspeople, skilled construction professionals, independent contractors, sub-trades, and responsible resource development companies.

They are the open shop companies – independent contractors who treat their workers well, build incredible projects, seek fair bidding opportunities, and create our communities’ homes, schools, roads, services, and much more.

Everything we do at ICBA Alberta is dedicated to serving these open shop businesses, helping their teams, and growing their businesses. We come to work every day because we believe in the people in construction and resource development.

To protect their workers and their families, we have grown into one of the leading independent providers of group benefits in western Canada.

To build the strong economy we know is vital to create the opportunities for projects and jobs, ICBA Alberta leads in public policy analysis, advocacy initiatives, social media, and provides training focused on supporting the construction sector and ensuring responsible resource development.

We offer services that have proven to help our businesses grow, including human resources help, wellness programs, innovative professional development courses, and much more – all geared to improve our members’ team and bottom line.

Whether you’re an entrepreneur striking out on your first solo job, a sub-trade looking for new projects, a general contractor in the midst of a tough bid, a resource development company looking for workers, a booming construction company, or anything in between – ICBA Alberta is there to help you meet every challenge and seize every opportunity.

Our relationship with ICBA spans over a decade. We are incredibly appreciative for their responsiveness and prompt customer service whenever we have needed assistance. We look forward to our continued partnership into the future.
