New for Emerging Green Professionals across Canada

The EGP Innovation Challenge: Next Generation Ideas from Canada’s Emerging Green Professionals. Applications are now closed

Emerging Green Professionals are:
  • 30 years of age or younger, or
  • New to the industry within five years, or
  • A full-time student, and
  • A member of their local Chapter

This year, the CaGBC’s Building Lasting Change conference will feature the thoughts and ideas of some of the industry’s brightest young professionals and future leaders. We invite emerging green professionals to apply for the chance to present at the first annual EGP Innovation Challenge.

If you are an Emerging Green Professional with a brilliant, viable and transformational vision, take this chance to share your creative genius with an equally passionate audience. One session at the conference has been set aside to showcase the innovative concepts, approaches, products, and processes developed by Emerging Green Professionals. Up to four presenters will be selected to deliver a 10 minute pitch of their most innovative sustainable idea after which subject matter experts will provide a few minutes of feedback.

The concept must be well-researched, planned and viable to the benefit of Canada’s green building industry. Presentations may be a totally unique and innovative concept or tie directly to any one of the five education streams.

Our subject matter experts will evaluate presentations based on the following:

  • Significance to CaGBC’s Mission
  • Degree of innovation
  • Viability

The EGP Innovation Challenge is open to all emerging green building industry professionals who are under 30, currently pursuing a career, or already working in the green building industry. If you are an EGP with ideas that will help accelerate Canada’s transformation to high-performing, healthy green buildings, homes and communities, applications are now closed for the chance to share your vision at Building Lasting Change 2017.

Applicants must be an Emerging Green Builder member of the CaGBC. If you aren’t a member yet, join your local Chapter today.

Submissions will be reviewed by an independent review committee. Applicants will be notified of the status of their submission by the end of April 2017. Applicants invited to speak at the conference will receive a 50 per cent discount off conference and social event registration fees.

Applications are now closed. Details and criteria for presentation submissions can be found in our online application platform.

Please note: you will need to set up a user account in Fluid Review to complete the application process. If you have any questions regarding the application process, please contact Jane Eaton, National Events Specialist at
