CANS Connect

Welcome to CANS Connect. To help meet the needs of our members across the province and region, CANS has developed CANS Connect, a fully integrated, high definition video-based system to be used for delivering education, presentations and connecting members to each other and their contacts. This state of the art video system includes two fully-equipped physical classrooms and the ability to provide dedicated connection for virtual meeting spaces simultaneously.

For example, the CANS Connect video system will allow us to hold a face to face seminar on blueprint reading here in Halifax while fully engaging members from Cape Breton to Yarmouth from their office or the jobsite. At the same time, a member can book a virtual boardroom to connect face-to-face with suppliers, clients, or job sites in any location with an internet connection.


For the 2013-2014 training year there are many courses available over CANS Connect. Courses available through CANS Connect will be identified beside the course title with the following symbol: Video Available

Once you have selected your course and registered online, you will be given instructions on how to download the CANS Connect interface to your PC, Mac, Android or IOS device. You will also be prompted to run a “test call” to ensure you can establish a clear connection.

CANS Connect will also provide access for CANS members to conferencing technology at minimal cost and enhanced productivity. Through “private meeting rooms” CANS will rent ‘space’ for members to have technical meetings, engage clients with product demonstrations, refine blueprints and track team progress in real time.
