NCHCA has partnered with OCA for the second annual Construction Community Cares Equipment Parade on Saturday, September 10, 2021 at 10:00am. We look forward to bringing smiles to the faces of children and their families in palliative care at CHEO and Roger Neilson House.
We are calling on our members to support this event by featuring their equipment in the parade and making a donation to CHEO. Please note that a donation is not required to participate in the parade.
A staging area and parade route have been planned to make it easy for equipment to drive through and for families to watch from the windows of the hospital, Rotel, Ronald McDonald House, and Roger Neilson House, and from the sidewalks along Ring Road.

We encourage you, your colleagues and your company to MAKE A DONATION of any amount and help us to show that the Construction Community Cares!

Many NCHCA members will know that the history of building Roger’s House as there was a tremendous charitable commitment of labour, materials and money from around a hundred local construction firms. The effort was led by Roly Hein, CEO of RE Hein Construction who charmed and cajoled firms to help out to the tune of $2 million dollars. Roly unfortunately passed away too young at age 67 in 2013.
