      Since 1975, the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association (ICBA) has been the voice of BC’s open shop construction industry. Every morning in British Columbia, nearly 250,000 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 LNG plants to the tallest condo buildings to the busiest hospitals to the rural farmhouse. They are building our communities, one job at a time.


                BCCA’s mission is to ensure our province is home to a world-class construction sector that demonstrates exceptional productivity and resilience.

                We’ve made it our mission to ensure that the skilled workforce, resources, and regulatory environment exceeds the needs and expectations of all industrial, commercial, and institutional construction employers. We work to ensure that everyone is represented, whether union or open shop, general or trade, located in the north or the south or anywhere in between.

                                                Milani Plumbing, Heating & Air Conditioning started as Milani Drainage in 1956. Demetrio, fondly referred to as the Chief, with the help of his wife Linda, decided to get into the drainage business. He bought himself a pick and a shovel, stuffed them in a canvas bag and went out to dig ditches; his only mode of transportation – the streetcars. After only a short time in the business, the Chief started to make a name for himself not only for his quality workmanship but also for his idiosyncrasies; he loved to write poetry and he was known to break into song whenever the notion took him, at work, on the streetcar or even in a restaurant.
