VIDEO: Journal of Commerce Weekly Update for the week of June 11th, 2012

In this week's update, we look at some of the stories coming up in the June 11th edition of the Journal of Commerce. The Manitoba Heavy Construction Association and the province of Manitoba have partnered to create a heavy equipment training program for aboriginal students. The program is the first of its kind, and 16 students have enrolled for the first course.

Kelly LaPointe has a report from the International Open Shop Conference in Ottawa on how Building Information Modeling (BIM) is gaining traction in the Canadian construction industry.

Korky Koroluk’s column this week is on Greenroads, an environmental certification initiative for roads similar to LEED. We also have a special Roadbuilding feature in Monday’s paper and online, and next week our feature video includes an interview with B.C. Roadbuilders and Heavy Equipment Association president Jack Davidson.

Make sure to check out the latest installment of the Social Media Master Class series, produced in conjunction with the Daily Commercial News and EllisDon.

All this and more in the Journal of Commerce, in print and online.
