Connect. Learn. Access.

In 2018, the CaGBC is pleased to host the WorldGBC Congress as part of the Building Lasting Change conference in Toronto. The WorldGBC Congress brings together green building councils from all over the world to share advancements in our joint mission to transform the built environment globally.

The International Trade Delegation (formerly the International Program delegates) will have many opportunities to network and learn from WorldGBC speakers and global experts brought to Toronto for the Congress. Trade delegates can also access Canadian exporters and delegates via our one-on-one business-to-business meeting to explore prospects for learning, trade and partnership.
