It has been an eventful year with the Canadian Underground Infrastructure Innovation Centre (CUIIC). We appreciate the contributions of our more than forty member organizations across the country, as well as those who have been involved in our current activities.
I personally have enjoyed representing CUIIC at events including NASTT No-Dig North in Toronto, the Canadian Common Ground Alliance (CCGA) Damage Prevention Symposium in Whistler, Canada’s Rural and Remote Broadband Community (CRRBC) Conference in Banff and the International Pipelines Conference in Calgary. It has been a privilege to meet and connect with so many in the underground sector across Canada.
The launch of the Canadian Underground Infrastructure Innovation Centre (CUIIC) has been exciting and I thank you for your commitment. CUIIC has received an overwhelming response from organizations across the country with a diverse representation of underground infrastructure sectors. Together we are building a community of professionals who share a common goal: To foster innovation and provide cost-effective, sustainable solutions to the challenges involved in building, assessing, and rehabilitating underground infrastructure.
