Make-A-Wish Saskatchewan makes chicken coop playground wish a reality with Northern Strands Group of Companies

posted by Certified Sales and Rentals    |   April 25, 2022 15:09

Spring is FINALLY here, and we are excited to take part in community events again. The Northern Strands Group of Companies, consisting of Fortis Mining Engineering and Manufacturing, Certified Mining and Construction and Northern Strands have been sponsoring Wishes through the Make-A-Wish Foundation for several years. Every year we fundraise with the goal of making one Saskatchewan’s Child’s Wish come true!

We recently had the opportunity to join the Make-A-Wish “Fairies” as they announced a child was going to receive their wish. This year we were matched with a little girl named Lennon. Her wish was to have a chicken coop playground, so she had an amazing place to play with her pet chicken. Her new chicken playground will have a cute new house for her chickens and a teeter totter for them to play on. Lennon is an amazing young girl who is sweet, compassionate, and just a joy to spend time with. We were thrilled to be there when she was told her wish was coming true. The look of joy and excitement on her face warmed our hearts. We are all looking forward to Lennon’s chicken coop wish being granted. No more than Lennon herself!

Make-A-Wish Canada is a fantastic organization dedicated to granting the wishes of critically ill children. Research has shown that children who have had their wishes granted can help build physical and emotional strength needed to fight critical illness. Since 1983, Make-A-Wish Canada has granted over 36,000 wishes across the country!

Make-A-Wish Canada and Certified Work Together to Grant Wishes Each Year

posted by Certified Sales and Rentals    |   February 22, 2022 11:49

There are many worthwhile charities for companies to partner with. Yet there are very few that offer a local and personnel connection like Make-A-Wish Canada. The Make-A-Wish Foundation is a charity in Canada whose grants wishes to critically ill children each year. The amazing work they do changes the lives of these children and their families for the better! This dedication to children and community aligns directly with the core values the Northern Strands Group of Companies holds. We have committed to grant the wish of one child each year for the past several years and everyone chips in to make this a reality. Our teams take this commitment to heart, and we work throughout the year make this donation possible each year.

With fundraising events not possible this year, our team became creative in their fundraising efforts. Our staff rose to the challenge this year and we collected recycling from all locations to send to SARCAN as well as having a silent auction with donation items from companies we work with.

This last year we sponsored a 7 year old girl named Alexis. She loves swimming, Lego and animals. Her wish was to have a puppy! Through our donations and fundraising this year we have been able to grant this wish for Alexis. She welcomed home a Cocker Spaniel puppy this year.



The creativity of these kids and amazing strength and spirit makes working with Make-A-Wish so much fun! There are quite a few children in Canada waiting for a wish so check out their page at: https://makeawish.ca for ways you can get involved or donate! It’s an amazing organization doing work to make the world a softer and gentler place for critically ill children in Canada. 


Certified Provides Mines With Underground Proof Load Testing Services For Rigging and Equipment

posted by Certified Sales and Rentals    |   December 24, 2021 09:41

If you have ever seen rigging, tools or equipment brought up from an underground potash mine and left above ground you will notice something happens very quickly to the equipment...corrosion. The potash on equipment, combined with exposure to the elements above ground starts the corrosive process. The simplest solution, don't bring equipment above ground if possible. Yet, mines still require equipment to be recertified annually or it needs to be replaced(an expensive option!). Certified provides a solution for this problem. Rather than bringing the equipment to Certified to pull test, we bring Certified to the equipment! We have set up underground vertical testbeds and provided a trained technician to recertify equipment. A 20ft Vertical Proof Load Testbed is set up underground. The testbed is rated  for 75,000lbs and is used to recertify lever hoists, chain hoists, various slings, and plate clamps. Typically this service is provided during the mine shutdown over a period of 8-10 days.

Certified Partners with Aramine to Provide Battery Powered Heavy Equipment and Parts to Western Canada

posted by Certified Sales and Rentals    |   September 7, 2021 12:47


Certified Mining & Construction Sales & Rentals are proud to announce they are now the exclusive distributer for Aramine for Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Alberta. This partnership will bring cutting edge, battery powered, heavy duty equipment and parts to the mining industry in Western Canada. 

Aramine is a leader in the field of mining and underground equipment. They are the preferred partner of some of the largest mining operations internationally and are represented in 88 countries. With a strong core value system that directly aligns with those held at Certified we are proud to announce this partnership 

Certified Mining & Construction Sales & Rentals (CMC) is a Saskatoon based sales and rental company that offers specialized equipment to the mining and construction industries in North America. 

This partnership with Aramine will only serve to build on both the rental options and the offering for the sales side. With Aramines offering on the battery powered, mine specific heavy equipment we will be able to partner with our clients to work towards lowering emissions without lowering productivity. 

Aramine has designed an innovative and unique range of small and medium section machines. High productivity, high reliability, great comfort and safety, Aramine machines are designed by their qualified engineers for the highest certification. 

The L140B mini loader offered by Aramine is a game changer for underground equipment operation. With their exclusive, patented battery pack system the equipment can run unlimitedly with a simple battery pack change. The operator’s compartment is side seated for underground compliance and the design and location of operational controls are located with the ergonomics of the operator and maintenance personnel in mind. Along with all these features, as  battery-operated vehicles there are zero O2 emissions and operate with low noise thus reducing the need for ventilation and cooling systems.  

As battery technology has advanced to the point where it is viable to be used withing heavy duty equipment it can be difficult to justify the upfront capital investment. Mining and Construction USA did an analysis last year on the key benefits of making the switch to electric. Some of the key take always are that you maintain performance while reducing ventilation and cooling needs, lower your risk of fire and carbon dioxide emissions while also improving working conditions. You can find the full article here: https://www.miningandconstructionusa.com/the-8-key-benefits-of-battery-powered-underground-mining 

The team at Certified Mining and Constriction Sales and Rentals are excited to work with you to bring Electric Vehicles to your site and help reduce emissions while keeping up the high level of production we know you expect.
