Telus will deploy a private network for the Quebec Construction Commission in a five-year deal estimated to be worth $1.5 million.

IP equipment from Avaya that includes unified voice messaging and speech recognition capabilities will be used in the project that will connect the commission’s head office location in Quebec City with 11 regional sites located throughout the province.

To work in a regulated trade or occupation in the construction industry in Qubec, a person must hold a competency certificate issued by the QCC. The certificate attests that the holder has the necessary qualifications to work on Qubec construction sites.

The QCC also sees that collective agreements in the construction industry are applied, and ensures that the manpower employed in this sector is qualified, notably by establishing mechanisms for initial training, apprenticeship and vocational upgrading.
