Description

Good Work, Clean Economy

Canada is on the precipice of a significant shift that will build on and significantly ramp up our clean economy.Ontario has already taken major steps toward this transition, and its new climate change strategy—including its commitment to cap and trade—will accelerate action.

But what does cap and trade mean for Ontario’s industries and its workforce? How do we capture the economic opportunities that come with clean innovation? How do we ensure all sectors of the economy benefit? And how do we prepare Ontario’s workforce for the job (and the jobs) ahead?

This event will bring together an audience of 350 business leaders in the GTHA with inspiring keynote speakers and a panel of diverse experts to delve into these questions, providing insight on the research, trends, and real-world examples that can guide us forward.
