TORONTO GREEN HOMES SUMMIT
The CaGBC Green Homes Summit was a one-day, regionally-focused education event focused on residential construction, including both single-family and multi-family homes (up to mid-rise level). There were speaker presentations throughout the morning and a panelist discussion in the afternoon followed by a tradeshow and reception.
