“The Equipment to Get the Jobs Done” will be in focus at the third edition of the Canada North Resources Expo, taking place at the CN Centre in Prince George this Friday and Saturday, May 26-27.
This is one of the region’s most popular heavy equipment trade shows, featuring the leading companies and products that are part of Northern Canada’s varied resources sectors – including forestry, heavy construction and major resources infrastructure.
“With visitor numbers rising consistently over each edition of the show and exhibit space growing, this event is considered THE show for Northern Canada’s resources sectors,” said Mark Cusack, National Show Manager.
The show covers a massive four acres of indoor and outdoor exhibits, with tons of big iron. At the show’s last edition in 2015, more than 8,400 visitors were in attendance. Similar numbers are anticipated for this year’s event.
Potential job seekers in search of new opportunities won’t want to miss the show’s Recruiting Here program – which aims to connect those looking for work with exhibiting companies who are currently hiring. A sneak preview of participating companies is available on the show website.
