Can't see the here.


Dear Readers,

Welcome to the September edition of the REM Resource Engineering and Maintenance e-newsletter. August and September have both been busy, with announcements of a new product from Shell, the unveiling of the design for SAIT's new Trades and Technology Complex, and the excitement of WorldSkills in Calgary. The autumn won't slow down anytime soon. We're two short weeks away from MainTrain Edmonton. Watch for coverage of the event on the website in October.

I welcome your comments on what you read here or in the magazine. You can contact me at
