Building Lasting Change

Without staying informed, expanding traditional thinking, and adapting to new ideas – no real change is possible. Our industry is constantly pushing itself forward with new thinking that is changing the built environment in ways that will impact generations of Canadians. This is why in 2013 the CaGBC National Conference and Expo will be focused on not just building sustainably, but Building Lasting Change.

Bringing our industry together in one, comprehensive event

Each year, the CaGBC brings the green building industry together for the CaGBC National Conference and Expo. It is the premier green building event that connects sustainably-minded businesses, organizations and individuals, and encourages them to look beyond their day to day work and embrace the bigger picture.

This year – we’re taking it a step further, by building on the themes and ideas generated at last year’s Conference in order to more specifically target our education streams, keynote speakers, and events to highlight the latest that Canadian green building has to offer.

Innovative speakers and thought leaders

The 2013 Conference brings you some of the best speakers from across North America – speakers whose wealth of knowledge, experience and ideas are sure to incite and motivate. Stay tuned in the months to come to learn more about the impressive array of speakers we are lining up for 2013.

Relevant education program

Our delegates tell us they come to the CaGBC Conference to recharge and get inspired by our education program. This year the program includes these diverse streams of education sessions:

  • LEED in Canada: 10 Years of Innovation
  • Future Green: Neighbourhoods and Cities
  • Leading the Way: Green Commercial Real Estate
  • Next Generation of Products and Materials
  • Pushing the Boundaries: Net Positive Buildings (SB13)
