CGCA High School Awards

Thank you to the Calgary General Contractors Association (CGCA) for hosting the annual High School Awards evening. A special thanks as well to PCL Construction Management Inc. for the site tour and dinner. Thirteen of Calgary’s top construction students along with their teachers and parents were given a site tour of the City Centre project.

With many skilled individuals on site each day representing a wide variety of trades, this tour was an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the numerous opportunities in construction for hard working and motivated students. 

A huge thank you goes out to the members of the CGCA who partnered with Calgary Fasteners and Tools for donating the generous gift certificates that will allow the awarded students to purchase construction tools of their choice. This event served to showcase the hard work and dedication of these students as the future industry leaders of the next generation. 





   
 

CCA Construction Career Expo Prize Winners

Congratulations to the winners of the Construction Career Expo’s two contests. For the first time ever, the Expo held a social media contest, where youth were asked to follow the CCA’s Facebook and Instagram accounts, as well as the new @CCAbuildsYYC Twitter account, and tweet a video/picture at the expo. Ryan Assoun from HD Cartwright and Destinee Federle from St. Rose of Lima were awarded with an iPad Mini each for their exceptional photos taken throughout the day at the Expo.

Students were also encouraged to complete a 10 question Construction Quiz for another chance to win an iPad Mini. Answers to the quiz were distributed randomly throughout the 50 exhibitors, encouraging students to visit and interact with every booth at the Expo. Completed quizzes were entered into a random draw, and the prize went to Chestermere High School’s Taylor Stockburger.

Understanding Your Environmental Contractual Responsibilities for City of Calgary Projects and Beyond - June 4

This session will discuss three environmental initiatives you need to be aware of when working on The City of Calgary capital projects. Understanding and implementing these initiatives can avoid costly remediation activities, negative comments into your Vendor Performance Evaluation and, as importantly, affecting the environment where our families live, work and play. It is important that not just our project managers understand these responsibilities, but that we give our site superintendents the understanding and tools they need to fulfill the company's contractual responsibilities.

The Canada-Alberta Job Grant - The Time is Now to Train

Given the oil and gas decline and the change in government, the time is now to get your staff up to speed before the storm returns! We know finding skilled employees is a challenge and this shortage of skilled workers will continue into the future. Take advantage of the Canada Alberta Job Grant program to pay for your staff training (minimum of 24 hours). The program will also pay for the Gold Seal exam fee as well as Gold seal Intern fee. Now is the chance to make the statement to buyers of construction that you believe in training your people to be the best they can be and prove it with Gold Seal!

See detailed information on the Canada Alberta Job Grant here.....   

With courses such as Claims, Scheduling Tips, Microsoft Project, Construction Management, Design Build, Dispute Resolution and Elearning courses there are many valuable courses to take advantage of and gear your team up for the aftermath following Alberta's restructuring.
