May 2, 2013, Prince George, B.C. – The Canada North Resources Expo
(CNRE) is less than one month away, taking place on May 31 and June 1st
at the CN Centre in Prince George, British Columbia. This event will
showcase more than four acres of indoor and outdoor equipment exhibits, and features a day where industry workers are encouraged to bring their families.

The expo will feature equipment needed to build the infrastructure for the $70 billion dollars worth of resource projects planned and underway in northern B.C. over the next 10 years.

Day two of the event has been dubbed "Future of the Industry Day" where industry stakeholders and workers will be encouraged to bring their families to the CNRE. This lets them introduce and educate the next generation to these industries and possible career choices. Families of the current workers could be the next generation of skilled trades’ people to continue on with these mega projects and are welcome to attend the event. Anyone who purchases a regular admission at $10 on this day or have pre-registered will receive free entry for their families.

Those that are interested in careers in these industries are encouraged to bring along resumes as several exhibiting companies are looking for new talent and will be identified at their booths with "Recruiting Here" signage. The seminar schedule including the Health and Safety Zone is now posted online.


Pre-registration and event schedules are available at Registering early grants half price off the cost of admission at the gate.
