OTTAWA – The president of the Canadian Construction Association (CCA), Mary Van Buren, is ending her six-year term with the association in the spring of 2024.

During her tenure, she led the organization to receive a 2023 Governance Award from the Governance Professionals of Canada, and oversaw initiatives including advocacy efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic and the piloting of a digital contracting service set to debut next year.

Van Buren’s leadership of the association is also notable in being first female presidency across the CCA’s hundred-plus year history.

In a statement on her departure, Van Buren reflected with pride on her leadership’s impacts across both the CCA and industry at large.


“I am so proud to have brought more attention to an industry that has such a profound impact on our country and affects positive change in our communities every day,” she said. “To see the growth in member engagement in advocacy and the resulting effects that a strong, unified voice for the industry has, is especially rewarding.”

The CCA’s board of directors also released a statement on this upcoming leadership change, thanking Mary for the “long lasting” legacy of her presidency and for her advocacy of association members and the issues they face across the industry.

The association is currently in the process of searching for Van Buren’s successor.
