ABOUT US

 

Ontario Construction User Council (OCUC) is a unique non-profit organization originally founded 48 years ago by major corporations to represent their construction buying interests to the Province of Ontario.

Its members were originally drawn from all sectors of industry including oil and gas, chemicals, mining, automotive, glass, electric power, and transportation. 

Today, OCUC members include major Users of construction services (Owners) and Construction related service providers across a number of business sectors. OCUC Users have an estimated annual constructed value of over $20B representing hundreds of significant projects across the province.
