Quebec, Mohawk hammer construction deal

March 15, 2018

A new partnership is underway between the Commission de la construction du Québec (CCQ), the Mohawk Council of Kahnawake (MCK), and Tewatohnhi'saktha to help Mohawk workers successfully integrate into the Quebec construction industry.
The Labour Agreement transferred the powers and responsibilities to the MCK regarding the qualifications of Kahnawake workers.
It also outlines the framework for a partnership with the CCQ so that Kahnawake workers can have their skills and knowledge recognized—to become certified and work in Quebec’s construction industry.
The Kahnawake Labor Office, headed by Mike O’Brien, is responsible for implementing the Labour Agreement.
“We are working to mitigate the obstacles that prevent Mohawk workers from working on sites outside our community,” said Chief Rhonda Kirby, who holds the labour portfolio for the MCK. “We are seeking solutions to give our workers an equal chance to join the industry.”
“It is essential that Quebec’s construction workforce represents the Quebec population, including First Nations communities,’’ noted Diane Lemieux, president and CEO of the CCQ.
