Emerging Green Professionals Committee
Committee Co-Chairs: Kaitlin Caroll 
& Stuart Cooper
The Emerging Green Professionals (EGPs) in the Greater Toronto Area are a coalition of students and young professionals intent on promoting the integration of future leaders into the green building movement. Emerging Green Professionals are defined as a student or a new professional within 5 years of graduation or 30 years of age or younger.

Advocacy Committee
Committee Chair: Julia St. Michael
In the spring of 2016, the Canada Green Building Council Greater Toronto Chapter's Advocacy Committee began discussions on building energy benchmarking. Ian Theaker’s article in the spring 2014 issue of Toronto Focus (p17-18), Building Energy & GHG Benchmarking: Labeling and Transparency, provided a comprehensive overview of the issue and its context across Canada and in Toronto. Over the next year, the committee pursued the initiative in a number of ways; the Chapter provided a letter of support for the motion presented by City Councillors to the Parks and Environment Committee for a staff report on a new bylaw and implementation plan to establish a mandatory ‘Annual Energy & Water Utilization Reporting Requirement’ for large buildings in Toronto for their March agenda. Any Chapter member interested in becoming involved should send their CV and expession of interest.
