CCA is pleased to present Chris McNally, C & M McNally Engineering Corp. with the 2018 CCA Civil Infrastructure Award.

He was also instrumental in the creation of several reports that proved crucial in obtaining substantive federal investments aimed at modernizing Canada’s aging public infrastructure. Chris also served as the chair of the CCA’s Industry Advocacy and Regulatory Affairs Committee and as a member of the CCA Executive Committee, becoming chair in 2017. Outside of the national association, Chris also served as chair of the Ontario Sewer and Watermain Association.
