EVENT DESCRIPTION

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 Canada. 
 
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, facility management and higher education will present and share their 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. 
 
Light dinner will be provided.
