National Dig Safe Month

National Dig Safe Month

April is designated National Dig Safe Month across Canada. Each year, during April, the Alberta Common Ground Alliance (ABCGA) and its members raise awareness about damage prevention and promote safe digging practices across the province.

Dig Safe Month coincides with the unofficial start of the spring digging season and this campaign serves as a reminder to homeowners and contractors that they need to ‘click’ or ‘call’ before they dig.

As a contractor, homeowner, or landowner, you can save time and money while keeping yourself, your community and your province safe by calling or clicking before you dig.

If you would like to help promote April Dig Safe Month, download the toolkit, which include advertisements, logos and sample social media posts, and use it in your organizations messaging throughout April.
