Online Registration Service Now Available!
Does your company organize seminars, conferences, tradeshows, or any other event that requires participants to register? If so, you can now provide an online registration option with credit card payment without the time and capital investment formerly required to offer this registration option. Our service can be set up within days and the only cost is a nominal fee per participant who actually registers online. In most cases, even one additional participant who registers due to the convenience of this service will cover the cost. Contact Us now to find out more!
It is now easier than ever to post environmental job openings for FREE on CanadianEnvironmental.com. Registration is no longer required - just fill in the form and we will notify you when it has been activated (normally within 24 hours)
