COOLNet Bulletin

Canadian Construction Industries 

Alarmed about Chinese Bid 

"The association’s biggest concern is that the takeover would give Aecon an unfair advantage over Canadian firms by giving it easier and cheaper access to money from the Chinese government. And that could push Canadian companies out of business."

COOLNet Alberta Tip!

How can I have projects sent to me using specific keywords that I have chosen?

There is a useful tool within COOLNet called “opportunity matching” that allows you to choose up to 10 keywords relating to your business. 

These keywords are chosen by you. Projects will be emailed to you directly to save you time by pulling all the projects that relate to those keywords.

To utilize this feature go to: My Account-->Edit
Opportunity Matching -->Add up to 10 customized Keywords using the “enter keyword” box and the “add keyword” button. Do not forget to SAVE!
