It’s official! CAM will receive support from (HRDC) to develop occupational standards for moving consultants. These standards should assist CAM in the further development and refinement of the moving consultant’s course.
CAM has directed its efforts and concerns to Workers’ Compensation Boards across the Provinces and to Revenue Canada concerning the unfair advantages being exploited by fly-by-night movers.
CAM is now in contact with the federal Ministry of Labour to ascertain jurisdictional responsibilities with respect to movers. CCMTA has just released a further report on hours-of-service guidelines which CAM is currently reviewing.
We have added a "job opportunities" section to the home page. If you are looking for moving personnel, try this advertising medium. The price is reasonable and we can post an ad to the site within a few hours.
On Tuesday, October 12, CAM moved its national offices to 590 Alden Road, Suite 211, Markham, Ontario L3R 8N2. The move was conducted with no interruption in service. Our new offices more than triple our space and allow for growth.
All our systems, including our phones, faxes and computers, were reinstalled in our new premises without incident. CAM is equipped with the latest in information technology to serve its members.
