The Canadian Dairy Commission (CDC) is proud to announce that the MILKingredients.ca Web site was recognized again this year by the Canadian Farm Writers’ Federation (CFWF) as the top Agricultural Web site in Canada. The CDC was awarded the Gold Award in the World Wide Web category (the Henry Heald Award). This award is given to the best Canadian-produced Web site with the majority of its content devoted to regularly updated agricultural news. Special attention was paid to how the Web’s unique interactive properties are used to enhance the site’s style, content, objectivity, balance and originality. Written content as well as visuals were also judged.
Each entry is judged independently by two judges. The awards program is designed to recognize excellence in Canadian agricultural communication. Award winners are recognized every year at the annual CFWF conference. This year’s event was held recently in Kelowna, B.C.
Again this year, this prestigious award would not have been possible without the significant contributions and expert services that have been made by our industry partners. Our sincere appreciation goes out to everyone who has helped make this a winning site.

When you hire a contractor for a particular construction project, say a home builder constructing a two-storey home, it does not always necessarily mean that the home builder contractor and his crew will be the one doing all the builder and constructing. Most contractors hire subcontractors who are particularly skilled and have a much needed expertise on certain aspects of the whole build. While a home builder and his crew are very skilled when it comes to building homes, there are still some areas with which some are just better.
Home builders will have workers who are exceptionally skilled in different fields. Although these skilled individuals may work for the home builder, it does not always mean they only exclusively work for that home builder. Take for instance plumbing and electrical installations. These specialty trades take very little time to accomplish when compared to the time it takes for a contractor to build the initial shell of the home. During the times their expertise are not yet needed by the home builder or perhaps they have already finished what needs to be done, instead of not working and not making any money, they then offer their services to other home builders who needs their trade expertise. The trade work they do is basically sub-contractual in nature.
One very important aspect of a home is its aesthetics. Of course, when it comes to the overall appearance of a home, nothing stands out more than the roof. Roofing can be a complex installation to handle as there are many facets to it that needs to be properly taken care of. Aside from the shape, dimensions, and design of the roof that needs to be carefully calculated and ordered, the frames where the roof sheets will be affixed to also require proper leveling.
The truth is that the complexities of designing and installing a home’s roof are no easy task. This is actually the very reason why many home builders choose to have their build’s roofing installation subcontracted to roofing contractors like that of roofers calgary by subcontracting every aspect of the roofs installation, the home builder is able to focus more on important matters such as the interior design aspect of the home. The advantageous aspect of subcontracting certain aspects of the build is that that certain matter now is being handled by experts who are more qualified in that field.
