WCA/MAA Technical Bulletins

As far back as 1964, the MAA has worked with the Winnipeg Construction Association (WCA), to consider various issues that arise within the construction industry and offer guidelines to members of both organizations. The guidelines have been published as a series of WCA/MAA Technical Bulletins.

In 2001-2002, the WCA and MAA completed a review process in which previous issues of Technical Bulletins were updated and issues for new Bulletins were considered. As a result, some older Bulletins were deleted and some new ones were published (see the current list below).

WCA/MAA Technical Bulletins do not have the same force or effect as MAA Practice Bulletins. Technical Bulletins are intended as guidelines only, to increase awareness of recommended industry practices.
