Can't see the here.


Dear Readers,

This year's MainTrain event in Toronto was a big success. It was a great example of how powerful networking and sharing ideas can be. It's impossible to get too much training, which is why it's positive to see so many participants at the MainTrain events in Toronto and Alberta. It's also positive to see young individuals getting involved in the skilled trades. Earlier this fall, talented young Canadians showed off their skills at WorldSkills Calgary. Check out the highlight video here.

As always, we welcome your feedback on what you read here. You can contact me at
