Canada’s foremost event for Net Zero Energy Homes

CHBA has taken a leadership role in helping early adopters of Net Zero Energy Homes overcome barriers and voluntarily build to higher levels of energy performance. We are reaching out to ensure our network includes key stakeholders that influence and impact the residential construction industry such as utilities, renewable energy solution providers, infrastructure design and development, financing, education and capacity building, research and technologies.
This event is not a conference where you come and listen for two days then leave with some good information and a few new contacts.
This is a Leadership Summit - where you and all 200 participants are part of the dialogue - interacting and providing input during each session to work though the opportunities and challenges. The result will be a nation-wide strategic action plan where priorities and stakeholders will be identified to ensure a holistic approach is being implemented, supporting the industry with solutions and tools to voluntarily adopt Net Zero at all scales (ie neighbourhoods) and applications (ie renovations).
You will gain insight into what the industry needs, what actions must be taken, and who will be part of developing and delivering these actions. Over the two days you will have opportunities to engage leaders and key stakeholders, leaving you with a stronger network upon which to build your Net Zero business opportunities.
Hosted at Harrison Hot Springs Resort in beautiful British Colombia, this remote location is perfect for networking with industry leaders and for motivational scenery to inspire innovative developments in residential construction.
Secure your seat at the most outstanding table in the Canadian Net Zero community.
