About Us

Contractors of Nepal who are relatively established today started their profession with their own effort without any help, guidance or training were trying to establish their representative organization before two decades or more. It was very difficult to establish such association during the party-less political system (1960-1990). This sector is contributing around 11 percent to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the country after the agriculture, the second largest employer of the country that provides employment opportunity not only to the unemployed but also to the underemployed and to the seasonal workers. Similarly, about 60 percent of the nations development budget is spent through this season. In spite of this, the effort from the government side to this sector was very limited only to extend of classifying the contractors to different classes and renewing their licenses annually.

In spite of this, the effort from the government side to this sector was very limited only to extend of classifying the contractors to different classes and renewing their licenses annually. After the restoration of multiparty democratic political system in 1990 the need of uniting the contractors for their enlistment and developing further professional skills was very much felt among the contractors themselves and accordingly the Contractors’ Associations of Nepal (FCAN) was born in 1990. The objectives & the structure of the association had been felt to extend due to the exposition of the development works & its burden to the Nepalese contractors. With the great enthusiasm of all the Contractors Associations of Nepal to be under a single forum, name and structure of this association has been changed as Federation of Contractors’ Associations of Nepal   (FCAN) in 1997. Till this date number of registered contractors in Nepal are Class A 228, Class B 282, Class C 1158 and Class D 10740 respectively. They all are associated with FCAN.
