Building Green in Canada

Do you want to know the latest news and information about green building in Canada? The Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC) is the national resource for architects, engineers and design firms, manufacturers, professional associations, developers, builders, government and public sector workers, and anyone with a passion for green buildings, homes, and communities.
Since 2002, the Canada Green Building Council has been fulfilling its mission to accelerate the transformation of the built environment, leading to a sustainable future. The CaGBC aims to change industry standards, develop best design practices and guidelines, and advocate for green buildings. Another important goal for the organization is to develop educational tools to support its members in implementing sustainable design and construction practices.

To this end, the CaGBC offers many seminars and workshops throughout the year, as well as a highly regarded annual national conference called Building Lasting Change. If you're looking for a way to be energized, informed and inspired about green building, consider attending the next conference in Toronto from June 6 to 8, 2016.
Building Lasting Change - National Conference and Expo 

The annual CaGBC conference is an event designed to maximize your ability to learn and network. Leading speakers and informative workshops are combined with social events, site tours, and a large expo of green products and services.
The conference is designed to be interactive and engaging while providing time for thought provoking discussions. The time you spend collaborating with industry experts and your peers will lead to greater things for Canada’s green building sector and our environment. 
Conference topics are always wide-ranging, challenging, informative and motivating, and are led by leaders in Canada's green building industry and beyond.
