As part of ACA’s ongoing partnership, AHS has requested ACA share the attached information with our members.  AHS has a need for Contractor services providers related to construction and capital projects across the province of Alberta. AHS intends to pre-qualify firms in various categories and subsequently engage such firms in the manner set out in this document.

Further, the pre-qualification process described in the attachments will be used for certain services required by Covenant Health and various AHS subsidiaries (or subsidiaries of those subsidiaries) (e.g. Carewest and CapitalCare). Accordingly, by pre-qualifying to conduct services for AHS, the Pre-qualified Proponents will also be pre-qualified to conduct services for Covenant Health and AHS subsidiaries (or subsidiaries of those subsidiaries).

AWES Seeking a Partner in Edmonton

Alberta Workforce Essential Skills Society (AWES) has been granted funding through Alberta Jobs Skills Training and Labour to research and develop resources for non-native speakers of English. These resources will support non-native speakers to assume and function in a variety of project management roles in the construction, manufacturing and service sectors.

This initiative is a response to the growing need for immigrants in skilled trades and related professional occupations to work on or lead project teams. The training and resources will be available through AWES at a date still to be determined. They are currently looking for a partnership with a firm in Edmonton to assist them in their efforts.
