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 partnerships and initiatives are:

  • RPM’s Safety Council
  • SAFE Roads Manitoba
  • Manitoba Motor Carrier Enforcement Newsletter Column
  • City of Winnipeg Best Practices Online Orientations
  • Development of Snow Removal Resources and Legislative Changes
  • 1 Life Workplace Safety Software Solutions – HEAT Exclusive Forms & Templates

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 and our Manager of Stakeholder Relations 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 Specialty Equipment Catalogue 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 canceled 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!!

Attract More Bidders To Your Tenders

Scope of work is very important to contractors who bid on jobs. Clearly defined tenders attract companies to bid on work. Your membership will include access to industry professionals who can provide you with knowledge you need to write and post tenders that receive submissions that have pricing that represents the expectations.

Highlight Your Community

Would you like Manitoba contractors to know more about your municipality? Not every RM contracts out the same type of work and HEAT would love to be a platform for you to share that. Are you looking for opportunities to share what you are doing well and to ask questions of others about how their Public Works Department handles similar situations?

Let Us Provide Easy Access To Local And Specialty Contractors

Get to know HEAT members and the type of work that different companies do, through our multiple networking events and the advertising that companies do through our Association. Building relationships and “putting a face to the name” is key!

Easy To Find Links To Your Tenders!

Tenders are not always easy to find on RM websites. A membership with HEAT will allow you to post a link to your tender on our Bid Opportunity Page. These links will also be provided to Contractor members through our weekly newsletters.
Increasing your number of bidders provides an opportunity for better pricing!
