Aon has been sponsoring events through the Construction Association of Nova Scotia heavily over the last two years.  We are being told repeatedly that although many contractors in Atlantic Canada did not know the Aon brand previously, they have now had the opportunity to see our name, meet our staff and have had multiple discussions about the extent of Aon’s capabilities locally, nationally and throughout the world.  These comments speak volumes about the value associated with our sponsorship investment. As Aon continues to grow and build relationships throughout the construction community, we will continue to support and enjoy CANS events.”
