October 16, 2013, Ottawa, Ont. – The Canadian cement and concrete
industry announced the formation of the Concrete Council of Canada, a new
organization of national and provincial associations bringing together
representatives from the full spectrum of cement and concrete manufacturers
across Canada.

The Council’s mission is to advance the industry’s
leadership in sustainable construction and promote the social, environmental
and economic value of concrete, concrete products and concrete systems in
Canada.

“Concrete is an essential piece of the puzzle in addressing
sustainable development. Concrete underpins much of our modern society – above,
on and below ground – and it provides the resilience our infrastructure
requires to minimize the effects of both climate change and human activity,”
said Robert Burak, Chairman of the Concrete Council of Canada. “The creation of
the Concrete Council of Canada reflects our industry’s determination to ensure
that the benefits of concrete are clearly understood and underscores that we
are committed to being a proactive partner in addressing society’s
sustainability challenges.”

The members of the Concrete Council of Canada will work
towards coordination and alignment of priorities and activities that will
amplify the impact of the respective programs of each industry sector, while
leveraging the particular strengths and expertise of each organization.

The industry is represented through various independent
organizations across Canada: cement, ready mixed concrete, precast concrete,
concrete pavers and concrete pipe.
