Providing Information on Life in Alberta’s Oil Sands

The Association for Construction Workforce Acquisition is a not-for-profit organization formed by certain Owners of Oil Sands Construction Projects to facilitate one portion of the Owners’ strategy to acquire adequate workforce resources in a time of skill shortages.

Working within the framework approved by the governments of Alberta and Canada, ACWA will forecast projected shortfalls of skills not available in Canada. After earnest and ongoing efforts are made to employ Albertans and Canadians first, ACWA will take steps to ensure adequate resources are identified, assessed, trained, and recruited in a cost effective and timely manner.
