Representing Member Interests & Promoting COOLNet Alberta!
AUMA Convention & AMSC Trade Show
November 22 - 24

Terrence Patrick, Buisness Development, rubbing shoulders with Mayor Nenshi at the City of Calgary Reception! A big shout out to Construction Associations leaders from Edmonton, Lloydminster and  Medicine Hat for making it to YYC for #AUMA2017.

The Alberta Urban Municipalities Association represents Alberta’s urban municipalities. 

Their goal is to "develop a strong and engaged partnership between all three levels of government by creating a shared vision of Alberta’s future—one that involves long term planning focused on social and economic growth, a strategic and stable funding matrix for capital projects, vital emergency and social services, and implementation and coordination in the delivery of these services."

Calgary's Construction Trade Dilemma 
“A major challenge is perception, often by parents, that trades are a lesser career path for their kids. The CCA is currently looking at targeting parents about their kids considering a career in construction. The reality is that parents push their kids in the professional career direction to become doctors, lawyers and engineers.”
- Chris Bardell, CCA Chair

Cow Town or Elbow Town?
Wichispa Oyade, translated to Elbow Town, is the requested name change by Stoney Nakoda.
 "The Stoney Nakoda people are the original occupants of the land and place names should be changed to their traditional Stoney Nakoda names in order to allow the culture and history of these lands to become more known and respected," reads the letter.

The CCA welcomes Clayton Desjarlais 
January 16, 2018 

Clayton has been the owner of Mâwandônan Consulting since 1996.  As a Status Indian and through his activities with the Association of Métis and Non-Status Indians of Saskatchewan (AMNSIS) while it was in existence, he is acutely aware of the issues faced by Aboriginal people in Saskatchewan.

Mâwandônan Consulting’s philosophy has always been that the best reason for organizations to embrace diversity is that it is good business.
