OTTAWA — Registration is now open for the Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada’s (MCAC) 2021 Student Chapter Summit, inviting students, faculty and members online to meet, network and learn about trends and opportunities in Canada’s mechanical contracting sector.
The first-ever virtual program will take place March 12.
The student chapter program encourages post-secondary institutions to get involved with their local MCAs to share in networking opportunities and education events.
The one-day program will provide an overview of career opportunities available in the mechanical contracting sector, as well as the important role the sector can play with respect to building performance, a release states.
Attendees will also learn about the liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility in Kitimat, B.C., joining team members from LNG Canada and prime contractor JGC Fluor JV to learn more about the project and participate in a short “Engineering Feat” hosted by the construction team from the site.
“MCA Canada is committed to supporting the next generation of workers in the mechanical contracting sector, and this event continues to be an annual highlight for our association,” explained Tania Johnston, CEO of the MCAC, in a statement.
“Since its inception, the Student Chapter Summit has continued to grow in attendance and popularity. We are extremely proud of this initiative, and excited to once again offer this great program and lineup of speakers. Although the pandemic is preventing us from holding an in-person summit this year, we are optimistic that the virtual format will allow even more students to take part.”
