Please Welcome CANS 2021-2022 Board of Directors

The Construction Association of Nova Scotia (CANS) is pleased to introduce our 2021-2022 Board of Directors who were instated at CANS 159th Annual General Meeting on September 29, 2021.

Being a member of the CANS board carries with it a great deal of responsibility and is a significant investment of time and energy. We applaud each of the current and past board members for their service to our Association.

We would like to take a moment to specifically highlight and thank Immediate Past Chair of the Board, Victoria Stanhope for her service during this past year. Your insights and counsel were greatly appreciated during such a difficult year and it’s been a privilege to have you serve as our Chair of the Board in 2020-2021.
