May 16, 2017 - In just over a week, one of the region’s most popular heavy equipment trade shows returns to the CN Centre. Taking place May 26th and 27th, the Canada North Resources Expo is a showcase of the leading companies and products that are part of Northern Canada’s varied resources sectors.

This massive biennial event focuses on “the equipment to get the jobs done” and features four acres of indoor and outdoor space with tons of big iron, including equipment, machinery, products and technology geared to forestry, heavy construction, and major resources infrastructure.

“This year marks the third edition of Canada North Resources Expo, and we’re thrilled to be returning to Prince George,” said Mark Cusack, National Show Manager. “Over the last number of years, this show has seen significant growth and support from the community. We’ve got a great lineup of exhibitors and are excited to welcome those involved in any aspect of the region’s resources sectors.”

On Saturday, May 27th, the show will celebrate the future of the industry with Family Day, and a chance for visitors to give back. Simply register one person for the show, give a donation to the Salvation Army Food Bank, and the whole family can attend the show. This offer applies on May 27th only.

Visitors are encouraged to follow the show’s Facebook page for an opportunity to enter to win prizes and free admission to the show courtesy of the Merritt Rockin’ River Fest as well as Western Equipment Ltd.

Also taking place during the show is the 2017 Interior Safety Conference. With a theme of “Leading Safety – Building Strong Supervisors”, the conference will include sessions on building strong teams, communicating with different generations, and much more. The full agenda and registration information can be found on the BC Forest Safety website.

Pre-registration for the 2017 edition of the Canada North Resources Expo is still available. Visitors are encouraged to take advantage of convenient online registration via the show website. By pre-registering, visitors can save 50% and fast-track their entrance to the show.

The Canada North Resources Expo is produced in partnership with the Resources Expo Society, a not-for-profit organization whose mandate is to facilitate training and educational opportunities in the central and northern BC resources sectors.
