Le CCGA s’engage à établir et à assurer un dialogue sur la gestion de la prévention des dommages avec les propriétaires d’infrastructures souterraines sous réglementation fédérale afin d’élaborer à l’échelle nationale des formations et des programmes de sensibilisation cohérents et plus efficaces.

The CCGA will be scheduling a virtual workshop in the near future with damage prevention and public awareness representatives to develop an education and awareness matrix that broadens public awareness responsibilities among all CCGA stakeholders – asset owners and ground disturbers alike.

Le CCGA planifiera bientôt à un atelier virtuel avec des représentants en prévention des dommages et en sensibilisation du public. Ils seront responsables de la création d’une grille où les responsabilités élargies en matière de sensibilisation du public seront définies pour tous les intervenants du CCGA : propriétaires d’infrastructures souterraines ainsi que les personnes susceptibles de perturber le sol.


"We hope to produce several of these animations," says Mike Sullivan, "but that will depend on whether or not the CCGA can sell enough licenses to pay for production of future animations."


Nous souhaitons produire plusieurs animations, mentionne Mike Sullivan, mais seulement si le CCGA réussit à vendre suffisamment de licences pour payer la création de futures animations.
