PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that on Tuesday, July 4, 2017 the Board will revise the Geographic Areas used in construction industry cases. This revision eliminates the “white areas”. It creates one new Board Area (33: The District of Parry Sound) and reconfigures seven areas (12, 16, 17, 19, 20, 21 & 32). Attached is a Construction Industry Area list [effective July 4, 2017] and two maps (Board Areas  – South and Board Areas  – North) which reflect these changes. The Board’s goal is to have created and installed on our website by July 4, 2017 a one-page map similar to the current one which shows the entire province. The current Geographic Area Map and the lists for Construction Industry Areas [January 1982] and [June 2016] will remain on the website.
