RETROFIT CANADA CONFERENCE

Paradox Hotel | Vancouver, BC

Decarbonizing and adapting existing homes and buildings 
to ensure equity and climate resilience

ABOUT CONFERENCE

The 4th Annual Retrofit Canada Conference will be in Vancouver on 12-13 June. As per the rest of the series, the event will continue to focus on industry updates, challenges, opportunities, best practices, and lessons learned across Canada's retrofit community. This year's event's theme is Decarbonizing and adapting existing homes and buildings to ensure equity and climate resilience. We will explore the many aspects of this theme throughout the two days, including the crucial elements of diversity and inclusion.

The event will continue to gather over 400 attendees from government: federal, provincial, and local, multi-residential and commercial real estate developers and owners, pension funds, community housing societies, Indigenous and First Nation communities, utilities, banks, impact investors, general contractors, ESCOs, architecture and engineering firms, LC3 groups, research institutes and universities, and specialists in HVAC, passive buildings, building envelope, and smart/green buildings.
It is the only event specially designed for Canada's retrofit sector, and we aim to provide an engaging, insightful, collaborative event for the community. In 2024 we will offer increased networking opportunities, interactivity, diversity, and actionable insights - all within a new venue. 

You can review the Key Learnings from the 2023 Panel Discussions here. Please share them with your colleagues and peers across the retrofit community.
