We’re looking forward to joining our colleagues at the Canadian Brownfields Network (CBN) on May 3 for the Canadian Brownfield Conference. The event, which is taking place at Toronto Metropolitan University, will examine an array of critical issues and complexities related to the future vitality of brownfield renewal.
CBN’s annual conference attracts attendees from across Canada, including land developers, engineering firms, environmental remediation companies, and legal and financial experts. The program features engaging sessions with case studies, panel discussions, and the HUB Awards!
With this year’s theme of “Brownfield Renewal: Addressing Tomorrow’s Challenges,” the conference will cover sustainable remediation and redevelopment, affordable housing, the energy transition, climate resilience, developer challenges, and more.
The program is kicking off with a look at “Sustainable Remediation and Redevelopment” by Stéphanie Bohdanow, lead Land Use Sector Development with the Green Municipal Fund, Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM).
How do we ensure that the properties we redevelop aren’t leaving an environmental legacy that will have to again been cleaned up decades from now? Bohdanow will discuss the importance of incorporating sustainable materials and practices into remediation activities as we work to improve both the current and future environmental footprint of the brownfield site.
