Building Lasting Change 2020
Beanfield Centre, Toronto | June 3-5, 2020


Building Lasting Change 2020 – The Critical Decade for Action

The coming decade calls for urgent and sustained action to achieve Canada’s climate change commitments. This goal requires accelerating and scaling up our collective impact across the entire building sector.

The next ten years will be defined by the building industry’s willingness and ability to take action in support of Canada’s transition to a low-carbon economy. Together, we can create high-performing and resilient buildings, communities, and cities able to significantly reduce or even eliminate climate change impacts while enhancing quality of life for Canadians.

Building Lasting Change 2020 (BLC) offers three days of forward thinking, new ideas, education, and networking with the leaders, change makers, investors and innovators of Canada’s burgeoning green building marketplace.

Plan to join us in Toronto.
