Your Interests Represented

Do you sometimes feel that there are just too many burdensome regulations? It’s hard to change Government legislation and contracts as an individual company but with a group of like minded companies behind you – anything is possible! H.E.A.T. has had a voice with both Municipal and Provincial Governments for over 30 years and are called to the table to share our experience on a regular basis. If you have concerns, or ideas for improvements that need to be shared, we want to be your liaison. Your involvement makes our voice stronger!


Our Association partners with other groups who bring together industry representatives for the greater good of a variety of our members. Some of our current initiatives are:

  • Big Rig Rescue
  • RPM
  • SAFE Roads Manitoba
  • City of Winnipeg Best Practices Online Orientations
  • Developing Snow Removal Standards

We work collaboratively on these initiatives with other organizations to make sure that the best possible resources are available to our members. Our members have the experience to bring new ideas and solutions for industry issues to the table. These programs are strong resources because of the collaboration between the different groups. If you have interest in being a part of any of these projects, please contact our office.

Your Questions Answered

Our Board of Directors have over 100 years experience between them and are available to answer industry-related questions for Trucking/Contractor Members. Our Board of Directors commit their time each month because they want to see a strong community of companies. We strive to create a safe and healthy work environment where success comes from working together instead of against each other. This can be accomplished when we share information and understand our costs.  

Your Equipment Advertised

Our new Specialty Equipment Checklist is a great way to make sure that your equipment is getting called to jobs. As our Association continues to grow, we hope that our website will grow to be the #1 place that companies or municipal governments refer to when looking to hire equipment in Manitoba.

Networking Opportunities

It's all who you know!! So much of your business will come about from a previous contact. Weather plays a big role on a day to day basis in our industry and it’s not uncommon to have to look for work when a project gets cancelled at the last minute. Aggregate companies often get large orders and have to scramble for extra trucks. Are they familiar with your company? Making connections is one of the greatest things you can do to propel your company’s success. Our events are well attended by the people you want to know!!! Get out of the office and make some connections!!

BFL Breakfasts

HEAT is lucky to have BFL Insurance as a huge supporter of our Association. Each year BFL sponsors multiple Breakfast Sessions with Industry Professional Bert Wiebe who moderates discussion on topics of interest chosen by our members. Sit down for 2 hours with other contractors and get new ideas on Workplace Health & Safety concerns, Human Resource Solutions, Insurance Questions, Current Industry Hot Topics and more! Breakfast is provided courtesy of BFL and the group chooses the next topic to be presented on!!
