What skills are required to support Canada’s net-zero objectives? What innovations should we focus on in the future? How different will the transition to sustainability look for various organizations, communities, and regions? Join the discussion on these topics, compare approaches, and network with like-minded leaders to help shape a sustainable labour market of the future.
