After a tremendous amount of planning and development, it is with great excitement that we announce the launch of BuildWorks Canada on Thursday, August the 16th.
BuildWorks Canada is the construction procurement and business development platform your business needs and has been developed in partnership with local construction associations in Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan. Replacing the provincial BUILDWORKS brand you’ve been using, BuildWorks Canada will maintain a locally connected service, while providing cross-province visibility for your project opportunities. BuildWorks Canada is where the work is, and through our new partnership and directory service we will expand your visibility and help you connect to the right projects for your expertise.
You will be able to access the new BuildWorks Canada service by using your existing username and password, and you should still have access to all your favourited projects. Head to http://www.buildworkscanada.com on August 16th and use your existing username and password to log in. You’ll also notice the BUILDWORKS link of winnipegconstruction.ca has been updated to point you to the new platform. If you have trouble logging in, give us a call at 204-774-2431 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that due to the platform change there will be system maintenance on Wednesday, August 15 at 7:00 p.m. – 1:00 a.m.
Important things to know:
The BUILDWORKS service will be taken down temporarily at 7:00 p.m. central Wednesday, August 15th for the transition to BuildWorks Canada. The estimated service outage time is 6-8 hours.
