September 22 - October 30, 2020

Ready, Set, Recover. The Canada Green Building Council’s Building Lasting Change conference has gone virtual for 2020.

Canada faces an unprecedented challenge — but also an unprecedented opportunity. We have reached a pivotal point where the transition toward a low-carbon economy must happen. At the same time, we face the social and economic fallout of a global pandemic.

As governments and industry consider Canada’s post-pandemic economic recovery, they will decide where to target increased spending and investment. Green building offers the most actionable solutions and can reignite the economy by creating skilled jobs and increasing innovation while reducing carbon emissions and enhancing Canadians’ quality of life.

In this critical decade, Canada must take urgent and sustained action to achieve its climate change commitments. Success will require accelerating and scaling up our collective impact across the entire building sector to provide healthier, low-carbon, and resilient places to work, live, and learn.

Building Lasting Change 2020 (BLC) offers five half-days of forward-thinking solutions, practical ideas, and education. Join us for real-time, online interactions with the leaders, change-makers, investors, and innovators of Canada’s burgeoning green building marketplace.

  • September 22 –READY, SET, RECOVER: Reigniting Canada’s Economy
