ECO Canada and its Vice-President Dr. Yogendra Chaudhry are excited to host a breakfast in Ottawa centered on Canada’s GHG regime.

As the country is set to pose an example globally on Canada’s commitment to combat climate change, the industry is embracing itself to deal with the unique two-tiered climate change regulations in the country. The existing and emerging GHG regime are expected to pose significant challenges to large emitters operating in multiple jurisdictions but at the same time present significant opportunities for the market-supported development of renewable energy, operational efficiency, and emissions offset opportunities.

This breakfast event aims to discuss the opportunities for the Canadian environment professionals in the era of new climate change policies and regulations.

Registration includes breakfast and refreshments.

This event is at capacity. Please join our waitlist. We will notify you if a seat becomes available.
