Event description

In 2021, CAGBC partnered with Enbridge on a series of webinars to help Ontario’s various regions identify opportunities to harness green buildings as a driver of their COVID recovery. Based on the series’ success, CAGBC and Enbridge continue their partnership in 2022 with a new series, expanding their focus to address critical issues affecting markets across the province.
