The Edmonton Construction Association (ECA) proudly announces the acquisition and successful revitalization of the TradesLink app. TradesLink is a social media app and community platform designed specifically for tradespeople. After its purchase in 2023, the ECA has worked on enhancing the platform to better serve the needs of tradespeople, bringing the refreshed TradesLink app back to market in 2024.
