OTTAWA, December 9, 2020 – In a year that saw the COVID-19 pandemic have a significant impact on industries across the country, the Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada has elected to maintain its current governance and Executive Committee, re-electing Dave Holek of Belle River, Ontario as President and Chairman of the Board of Directors. Holek will be serving his second term as President and Chairman after he was first elected as President in October of 2019.
“Without any doubt, 2020 was a challenging year for our industry and our members across Canada,” said Holek. “I am proud to continue in this role to represent our close to 1,000 members as we work through these challenges and the COVID-19 pandemic. MCA Canada has a very capable Board of Directors to help guide our national association through these difficult times, and I look forward to working with the Board and our many partners in the coming year.”
This past year saw MCA Canada focusing primarily on support, education and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As a national association, we are working very hard to ensure we can address our members’ issues from across Canada,” Holek added. “With that said, I want to reiterate how proud I am of our members and to represent this sector. Our members have not only proven themselves to be essential in times of crisis, but I believe that our value will only be heightened as country emerges from the pandemic.”
