Derek Flight and Mike Fralick joined the Waste Water Nova Scotia Expo again this year. They had lots of great discussions and the equipment demonstrations were a hit. The Expo took place over two days in April at the Best Western Glengarry Trade and Convention Centre in Truro.

The province of Nova Scotia regulates many activities around the treatment or disposal of sewage. This is because of the potential public health risk. The province issues different kinds of certifications, from septic tank cleaners up to professional engineers. Derek and Mike were able to meet some of our local professionals from across the region, along with their suppliers of pumps and purification systems.

“You get to learn about the industry and the concerns of the contractors,” said Derek. “One of which is insurance coverages and costs.”

“We received a lot of positive response from the association members to our presentation,” said Mike. “We look forward to helping them identify their specific needs and assisting them with the right insurance program.”

It’s important for us to stay up-to-date about the best practices and products in a variety of industries. This knowledge helps us serve both our personal and commercial clients. And when we have representatives from AA Munro Insurance and AAM Financial, as we did with Derek and Mike at this recent event, clients can learn about how their various needs might fit together. Like how savings on commercial insurance could be put into an RRSP or how life insurance could be another way to protect their home.

This year’s Waste Water Nova Scotia Expo was the third annual. Waste Water Nova Scotia has been organizing for the industry since 1997, when Nova Scotia Environment started developing private sector delivery models. The two groups continue to work together on industry education and guidelines.
