Event highlights

Join the EGP committee for our first event of the year. We will be hosting a Speaker Series that will focus on Skills Gap in the Zero Carbon Workforce in Ontario. 

There is a surge in job opportunities in the low carbon buildings landscape and there’s a growing opportunity to fill the skills gap. At this event, industry leaders in design, construction, facilities management and higher education will present and share their work experiences in the low carbon building sector, what gaps and opportunities exist in the market, and what different industry stakeholders need to do to stay ahead of the curve to fill these gaps. 

Participants will have the ability to ask questions, learn, and contribute to discussion topics while networking with like-minded individuals in the industry.
